Dr. Lea David finished her PhD at the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at Ben Gurion University, Israel. Her work examines how the transition to democracy is changing the content of collective memory in Serbia and is producing new social categories. Her dissertation explores how a contested past is managed through clashes between local and global memory cultures. She has also lectured on the conflict in the Former Yugoslav countries at various Israeli universities and colleges. Her post-doctoral research at the Strochlitz Institute for Holocaust Research at Haifa University deals with memory politics in international relations.
