Dr Emilie Fort, Ph.D. in Political Science

Postdoctoral Research Assistant in the School of Government and International Affairs

(email at

Emilie joined the School of Goverment and International Affairs as a Postdoctoral Research Assistant in 2020, after completing her Ph.D. in political science at Univesité Laval (Canada). Her research analyzed the role of living space in the building of identities. She particularly focused on Kosovo Serbs living in three Serbian villages in Kosovo.

Her postdoctoral project aims to investigate women’s activism in the former Yugoslavia. It explores the everyday practices and discourses of women as well as their personal trajectories in order to study patterns of identity intersections that hinder women’s participation in organizations at the local level, and strategies of mobilization.
