Una Blagojević

Year of Enrollment: 

After finishing an MA in Philosophy at the Institute of Philosophy, KU Leuven, Belgium, I completed an MA in History at Central European University in Budapest. There, I looked at the international intellectual dialogues between Marxist intellectuals in the context of the events of 1968. Currently, my doctoral research focuses on the intellectual history of Marxist Humanism in socialist Yugoslavia. The aim of my research is to reconstruct this dense stream of philosophical and political thought with a view to its regional and international embeddedness. I am broadly interested in the social, cultural, feminist, and art histories of East Central Europe, and the history of modern philosophy. In addition, I am interested in various theoretical and methodological approaches to history, and the challenges of writing transnational, comparative, and global histories.

From September to November 2020, I was a researcher on an Erasmus Internship Mobility Grant at the Research Centre of the Slovenian Academy of Arts and Sciences (Institute of Culture and Memory Studies) in Ljubljana.
During 2021–2022, I was at Cornell University (Ithaca, New York) as the Sidgwick-Miller CEU Scholar at the Cornell Branch of Telluride Association.
Currently, I am a fellow at the Institute for Human Sciences (Institut für die Wissenschaften vom Menschen, IWM) in Vienna, on a SEE Graduate Scholarships program.
