Azra_HromadzicINSCT Faculty Member Azra Hromadzic, an Assistant Professor of Anthropology in the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs, has received a Meredith Teaching Recognition Award from Syracuse University.

A substantial bequest from the estate of L. Douglas Meredith, a 1926 graduate of SU’s College of Arts and Sciences, allowed for the creation of the Laura J. and L. Douglas Meredith awards to recognize and reward outstanding teaching at the university. The Recognition Award is given to non-tenured faculty members.

Hromadzic is a cultural anthropologist with research interests in the anthropology of international policy in the context of peace-building and democratization. Her book manuscript in preparation—“Empty Nation: Youth, Education and Democratization in Post-Conflict Bosnia and Herzegovina”—is an ethnographic investigation of the internationally directed postconflict intervention policies in Bosnia and Herzegovina and the response of local people, especially youth, to these policy efforts.

Hromadzic is focusing future research on a new project that will ethnographically research aging in the context of postwar and post-socialist Bosnia and Herzegovina.
