Jasmina Tumbas’s book Queer and Feminist Yugoslav Diaspora: Art of Resistance Beyond Nationhood will be the first study devoted to theorizing and historicizing contemporary art of the queer and feminist Yugoslav diaspora at the intersection of gender, migration, race, and exile.           

Jasmina Tumbas is associate professor in Global Gender and Sexuality Studies at the University at Buffalo, SUNY. Her research focuses on contemporary art that illuminates the societal impact of political ideologies, especially in the context of human displacement and feminist and queer histories of resistance in the East European region and its diasporas. She is the author of “I Am Jugoslovenka!”: Feminist Performance Politics During and After Yugoslav Socialism (Manchester University Press, 2022), which was awarded the 2023 Barbara Jelavich Book Prize.
