  • Profile

    Professor Greble is on leave for the 2012-2013 academic year, working on a book, entitled Islam and the European Nation-State: Yugoslav Muslims between Mosque and State (1908-1949).

    Professor Greble specializes in the history of modern Eastern Europe and the Balkans, particularly the countries of the former Yugoslavia. Her research and teaching focus on questions of nationalism, war, social transformation, and Islam in Europe. Her first book, Sarajevo, 1941-1945, examined the multicultural city Sarajevo during the Second World War. Her current book project looks at Islam in the Balkans from the late Habsburg to early Communist periods. Professor Greble has held fellowships at the Remarque Institute at New York University, the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs, part of the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard, and the Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies in Washington, D.C. She also has received numerous grants, including from Fulbright-Hays, ACLS, Mellon foundation, and IREX; she will be an NEH Faculty Fellow in Spring 2013.
