Dr HadziMuhamedovic

Dr Safet HadžiMuhamedović is an anthropologist of sacred landscapes, syncretism and inter-faith relations. He earned his PhD in Anthropology from Goldsmiths, an MPhil in Social Anthropology from the University of Cambridge and BA degrees in History of Art and Sociology from the University of Sarajevo and Kenyon College. He has conducted long-term ethnographic fieldwork in Bosnia, as well as stints of research in Palestine, Israel and the Basque Country.

Safet joined the CIP team in 2020, after convening anthropological courses on landscapes, religion, gender, kinship, Islam, social theories, politics, economics and research methods at SOAS University of London, the University of Bristol, Goethe University Frankfurt and Goldsmiths University of London. He continues to co-convene the Anthropology of Travel, Tourism and Pilgrimage Summer School at SOAS. He has also previously worked on a large-scale ERC project into transitional justice in Bosnia and Spain and co-founded the Centre for Interdisciplinary Research of Visual Culture in Sarajevo. Safet has been recipient of a number of prestigious research awards (including OSF, ERC and FCO). Safet has written on syncretic landscapes, temporality and historicity, war crime archives, political agency of ‘nonhuman’ beings and ontological approaches to the question of home. His current major project investigates syncretic cosmologies and subterranean rivers in south Bosnia. Safet is the author of Waiting for Elijah: Time and Encounter in a Bosnian Landscape (2018) and the co-editor (with Marija Grujić) of Post-Home: Dwelling on Loss, Belonging and Movement (2019).
