Historian Emily Greble receives Fulbright Award for book project

Emily Greble, deputy chair of CCNY’s history department, has been awarded a Fulbright to research and write a book in Serbia about Muslims in post-Ottoman Europe.
City College of New York historian and author Emily Greble is headed to Serbia on a 2015-2016 Fulbright Scholar Award to research and write a book about Muslims in post-Ottoman Europe. She will spend spring 2016 working on the project entitled “Muslims on the Edge of Europe: the Making of a “European” Islam in the Balkans, 1878–1946.” The book analyzes Muslim life, politics, law, and culture in the post-Ottoman Balkans. 
An associate professor and deputy chair of City College’s history department, 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 Islam in Europe, civil war, social transformation, and the nature of the post-Ottoman era.
Her first book, “Sarajevo, 1941-1945: Muslims, Christians, and Jews in Hitler's Europe” (Cornell University Press) was published in 2011. It probed the nature of multiculturalism and the ways that a multicultural community responded to the crises of occupation, civil war, and genocide. 
Greble has held fellowships at the Remarque Institute at New York University, the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs at Harvard, and the Mandel Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies.
