Milana Čergić studied culture and social anthropology in Vienna and Paris before completing her PhD. During her PhD at the Max Planck Institute for Social Anthropology in Halle and at the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales in Paris, she researched economic and social transformations in a post-socialist Bosnian city through a domestic supermarket chain. She earned her Ph.D. in 2022. Milana's research interests focus on the transformation of labor, forms of exploitation, and the creation of various forms of social security in the Balkans. As a research associate at the Institute of Cultural Anthropology at Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz, she is a member of the ReDigIm project (Redistribution Imaginaries in the Digital Age) and conducts research on notions of redistribution in Montenegro.
