Czech Society

I have a long-standing research interest in the Czech Republic. This includes my work on the impact of the 1989 revolution on gender, as examined in my edited volume, Bodies of Bread and Butter, and in my book, Young Women of Prague (co-authored with Alena Heitlinger).

 

I also have written about masculinity, memories of political change, and more recently, I have completed a book (Traversing) on embodiment, technology, and culture, which ethnographically focuses on the Czech Republic.
