Biography: target= _blank > Ana Dragojlovic is a lecturer in Gender Studies at the University of Melbourne, Australia. She is an anthropologist working at the intersections of mobility, post-colonial and critical race studies, feminist and queer theory, and masculinity studies. She is currently working on a project that focuses on therapy cultures, particularly as they related to historical violence with interests in affect, embodiment, and subjectivity. Her regional specialisation reflects her interest in diasporas and empires and includes Indonesia, the Netherlands, Dutch East-Indies and Afro-Asian connections (particularly in relation to the Afro-Caribbean).
