PhD Student Marko Kljajic Featured on the 1050 Bascom Podcast

In the latest episode of 1050 Bascom, the hosts sit down with the Department’s very own Marko Kljajic. a PhD student studying comparative politics and international relations. His research and teaching interests focus on the political psychology of polarization and reconciliation in the aftermath of civil conflict. In particular, he is interested in the role that collective victimhood beliefs have on intergroup dynamics and political mobilization. Marko will be teaching a new seminar course this coming fall called, “Why We Fight: The Politics of Intergroup Conflict”. We asked Marko about his class as well as the role of polarization in conflict in the United States and around the world.  We learned a lot and hope you will too.
