Research Interests

Maša completed her PhD at the University of St Andrews. Her research interests are oriented by the rubric of international political theory and the history of political thought, with a specific focus on twentieth-century philosophies of existence, poststructuralist and critical theories, and their significance to issues of transitional justice, political judgement, responsibility, evil, violence, critique and resistance in the contemporary world. In addition, she is interested in the relatively recently emergent field of the ethics and politics of narrative. At present she is completing a book manuscript on the existential narrative imagination and the ambiguity of political judgement. She is currently a postdoctoral research fellow working on the ERC-funded project, entitled "Illuminating the ‘Grey Zone’: Addressing Complex Complicity in Human Rights Violations."
