Keith Brown works primarily in the domain of culture, politics and identity. As well as extensive research on ethno-nationalism and the role of national history in the Balkans, his more recent work explores how different transnational processes--including labor migration, democracy promotion, and commodity production--contribute to people's sense of long-distance connection, and new forms of citizenship and belonging. He is committed to collaborative research and learning that involves scholars and practitioners working in different professions and academic disciplines.
