Biographical Notes

Snezana Otasevic finished her undergraduate studies in philosophy in Belgrade, Serbia. For several years, she worked as a philosophy teacher at high schools and as a translator. During that time, she translated Routledge's History of Philosophy vol. 2 From Augustine to Aristotle and edited the translation of Hannah Arendt's The Life of the Mind. She entered the PhD Culture and Media Studies program in Belgrade, where she worked as a researcher on the project Gender Equality and Cultural Citizenship. In 2011, she came to the Rutgers' Women's and Gender Studies Program as an exchange student. The following year, she enrolled in the Women's and Gender Studies PhD Program. Her broader fields of interest are philosophy, feminist theory, dance, and disability studies. Within those fields, she is particularly interested in exploration of space, time, movement, and affect. Recently she is focusing on the 19th century medical concept of monstrosity and the ways in which 'form' and 'deformed' reproduce (and are them selves reproduced) within affective economies.

WGS Statement on Academia and Free Speech Rights

It is inherent to the discipline of Women's Studies to deal with complex subjects through theoretical lenses, which question conventional knowledge production. This department, one of the most distinguished departments of WGS in the country, has a highly visible faculty of national and international reputation invited to speak in various fora on sometimes highly controversial subjects. Such faculty members, as scholars, have not only a right, but also an obligation to produce and disseminate knowledge within and beyond the academy. Moreover, as private citizens, our faculty continue to enjoy the same freedoms of speech and expression as any private citizen and in accordance with university policy the department supports their protection from institutional discipline in the exercise of these academic and free speech rights.
