Areas of supervision
I would welcome research proposals on modern and contemporary history of South Eastern Europe. Proposals for joint supervision (with colleagues at Goldsmiths or other University of London colleges) would be welcome also, on comparative topics that would include former Yugoslavia and the Balkans.

■ Christian Kurzydlowski, 'Another Balkan Myth? The Extreme right wing in Serbia: Indigenous phenomenon or foreign adaptation?'
■ Fellow of the Royal Historical Society
■ Member of the Association for the Study of Nationalities (ASN), British Association for Slavonic and East European Studies (BASEES), and external member of the advisory board of the Vane Ivanović Collection, Kingston University.
