Andrew Gilbert is an Assistant Professor at Anthropology Department, University of Toronto, Canada. His research focuses broadly on the politics of social transformation. He investigates at the intersection of three analytically distinct but otherwise overlapping contexts in contemporary Bosnia-Herzegovina: (1) the various attempts at social and political engineering that make up "international intervention," (2) the presence of socialism in everyday life, and (3) the relationship between violence, historical narrative, nationalist mobilization and state-building.
