PhD Candidate Michele Bianchi awarded honourable mention in graduate student paper competition


Thursday, August 8, 2019

PhD Candidate Michele Bianchi was awarded an honourable mention in the 2019 Graduate Student Paper Prize Competition from the Society for the Anthropology of Europe (SAE). The prize committee was very impressed with his paper, “International Intervention and Anti-Political Identities in Post-War Bosnia and Herzegovina.” The prize committee wrote: “We appreciated the critical and analytical thrust of this paper and its attention to the effects of American-led international intervention and “democracy-building” in Bosnia. Critically interrogating the concept of power-sharing, the paper nicely demonstrates the paradoxes of the post-Dayton political structure in which Bosnians must now live.”

Michele will receive this prestigious international award this November at the SAE Business Meeting at the American Anthropological Association Annual Meeting in Vancouver.

Congratulations on this international recognition of your work, Michele!
