- PhD Student - Cultural
Anika Jugović Spajić is a PhD candidate in Cultural Anthropology. Her research interests lie in the intersection of medical anthropology, political anthropology, and anthropology of the state. Her research concerns the practices of patient-activists with diabetes and the ongoing negotiations of their position as civil society representatives in the larger matrix of the public-private healthcare system in Serbia, as well as the kinds of lifestyles and ideas of health are circulated through their activism. The main avenue which she uses to explore these negotiations is the (re)delegation of various responsibilities for provision of care between the state, civil society, and citizens.
