Anthropologist Andrew Gilbert has a PhD from University of Chicago and has been doing research in Bosnia and Herzegovina for nearly 20 years. His forthcoming monograph International Intervention and the Problem of Legitimacy: Encounters in Postwar Bosnia-Herzegovina is an ethnographic analysis of international intervention as a series of open-ended, innovative, and unpredictable encounters across difference and inequality. It highlights the unstable and creative processes of social and cultural production that happen between and among an array of intervention agents and their target populations. His other publications have focused on refugee return, humanitarianism, nationalism, violence, and the relationship between the historical imagination (how people conceive of history) and the political imagination (how people conceive what is politically possible). He has taught at University of Toronto, McMaster University and is currently Visiting Professor of Anthropology and Sociology at the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in Geneva, Switzerland.
