Sanja Djerasimovic

Sanja Djerasimovic is a research fellow at the University of Exeter, where she studies the broad but interconnected areas of higher education policy, academic identity and practice, particularly among early career academics, and citizenship. More recently, her work has particularly focused on the so-called ‘impact agenda’ or the ‘third mission’ of university, and the ways in which this discourse communicates with the professional, vocational, and personal notions and practices of responsibility, agency, and citizenship in academic work, especially within humanities and social sciences. Prior to joining Exeter, she has held research and teaching posts at the University of Oxford, where she completed her doctorate on citizenship education policy and post-communist education reform in Serbia.
