Sara Arko
School/Organization/Current anthropological attachment
Department of Ethnology and Cultural Anthropology, Faculty of Arts. University of Ljubljana
Graduated at the same department with diploma thesis, focusing on (ethnic) identity constructions, transformations and politicizations among Macedonian-speaking Muslims (the so-called Torbeshi) in Western Macedonia (stayed there from October 2006-February 2007). Got a faculty "PreŇ°eren" prize for that one ;-)
Now I'm a post-graduate student and I reoriented myself towards developmental issues in (post)conflict areas, namely, Kosovo. I'm interested in international cooperation (IOs, GOs, NGOs, military presence) on the field, and their visions and practices of "development". Will try to combine working for a development institution for some time with "freelancing" anthropology for the rest. With some luck and effort, I should have my PhD finished in roughly 3 years.

I found OAC through the MASN (Moving Anthropology Student Network) connection, which was already mentioned somewhere on these pages... MASN also has a quite recently created ning page, which replaced the previous more static homepage. Aimed as a platform, connecting primarily students of anthropology, one of the most valuable (for me, at least) outcomes of MASN were the MASN conferences, organised in a "moving" way in 6 different countries over the past few years by enthusiastic members (actually, we did the last one in Slovenia, last August - 2008). Quite tough work for the individual "national MASN teams" (who provided literally everything for around 80 participants and 5 conferencing days each time - biggest issue was getting the funding, of course), but it was worth it. We made some good friends there, connected practically worldwide with anthropology (ethnology, sociology...) students and their work, got the opportunity to present our work to an international audience and get constructive comments, and our "live"-networking actually resulted in some common projects initiated and carried out by MASN members beyond national (and institutional) borders. Currently, MASNers are waiting for a new initiative for the 7th MASN conference. Enthusiasts welcome! :-)
