Dr. Hariz Halilovich is a senior lecturer in socio-cultural anthropology at Monash University in Australia. His recent book is titled, Places of Pain: Forced Displacement, Popular Memory and Trans-local Identities in Bosnian War-torn Communities, published by Berghahn Books, 2013.  Dr. Halilovich is a survivor of the genocide in Bosnia and originally traveled to Australia as a refugee. Dr. Halilovich is a founder and coordinator of Summer University Srebrenica, a program for undergraduate and postgraduate students as well as researchers to conduct research projects on topics related to genocide, transitional justice, post-conflict studies, and human rights. Dr. Halilovich is currently conducting a three-year research project funded by the Australian Research Council titled "Recognizing the pain of others: gendered displacement, memory and identity in the Bosnian refugee diaspora." The study concerns contemporary issues related to place, mobility and identity from a gender perspective, (i.e., Bosnian war widows) in Australia, the U.S.A., and Austria.
