Robert A.Johnson,

You may contact Prof.Dr.Zorica Kuburic. She is very nice lady and might be of great help for your subject of interest.

Please see contact details & some other info here:

Dear Robert , there's not an easy answer to your question...
Which religion? Official Serbian Orthodox Church or "folk ortodoxy" and different religious customs and practices in the villages and towns? Vojvodina is more diverse than the rest of Serbia with more than 25 ethnic groups and six official languages! View Wiki:
There are many Roman Catholics and some Protestant.
In Serbia, there are also Muslims.

A basic overview can be: Zorica Kuburic (2006). Religion in Serbia and Montenegro, in: Worldmark Encyclopedia of Religious Practices, Vol. III, Ed. Thomas Riggs.
Thomson Gal. SAD. pp 307–312. ISBN 0-7876-6614-9 (vol. 3).

If you can read Serbian (or Croatian, Bosnian, Montenegrin) language much more can be found here in Serbia in libraries...There are really a lot of very interesting books and papers about religion. To mention from 2012 "Religija ovde i sada : revitalizacija religije u Srbiji (Religion here and now: the revitalization of religion in Serbia)" by Lidija Radulović, she is professor of anthropology of religion here in Belgrade.

Hi Robert, I will be submitting my thesis by the end of this year, hopefully in November, and it will be automatically published by my university (LSE). There's a chapter that deals specifically with local politics in Vrsac (a town in Banat) and I refer to material from Vojvodina across the thesis. Unfortunately religion is not my focus - I'm writing about political and social transformations as seen through the prism of the relationship of civil society and the state.

Thank you for sharing this very interesting material!

Andrea, Henig has written an informative thesis about Sufi's in Boznia.

"The Embers of Allah: cosmologies, knowledge, and relations in the mountains of central Bosnia"

Andrea Zuppi:

Katherine Verdery published "Vanishing Hectare:  Property and Value in Postsocialist Transylvania" in 2003.

Hello all:

I am a PhD candidate very early in my studies on Serbia.  I have found much information on the break up of Yugoslavia and Serbian nationalism, but little else.  I am interested in religion (as ritual and value formation) and economics.  I have a particular interest in Vojvodina.  Where might I find recent ethnographic research on Serbia in general - and Vojvodina in particular?

Hello! something about enviromental/ecological anthropology? relations/perception to/of the environment, ? I dont know if there are some studies for instance of hunting communities in transylvania? 

Comment by Remus Gabriel Anghel on September 9, 2013 at 10:48am

Hi Andrea, what kind of ethnographic work do you need on Romania, on what kind of subject?
