Jovana Zujevic

Jovana Zujevic (Ph.D., Spanish Literature and Cultural Studies, Georgetown University) joined Princeton University in 2017. Her research and pedagogy reflect her commitment to interdisciplinarity and to drawing connections between everyday life, scholarly work, and classroom activities. Her current research lies at the intersection of literature, journalism, and digital media studies and examines how various manifestations of literary journalism in contemporary Spain (newspaper columns by fiction writers, blogs, and magazines) narrate, question, and redefine what is traditionally perceived as everyday life. Her other interests include travel writing and transatlantic studies. Dr. Zujevic has presented her research at numerous conferences and has published articles on literary journalism in Spain and the use of online platforms for teaching as an alternative to traditional textbooks.

In addition to her research, Prof. Zujevic has designed and taught a variety of Spanish language and culture classes, Spanish for the professions (foreign service and business), as well as courses on Peninsular and Latin American literature, theatre and film.

At Princeton University, Prof. Zujevic has taught beginning, intermediate and advanced level language, culture and film courses, and has acted as coordinator of SPA209: Spanish Language and Culture through Cinema. She has also supported undergraduate students as Faculty adviser for the Fulbright U.S. Student Program Competition (Fall 2019) and Junior Paper, and has been a Spanish Language Table host during the 2018-19 academic year.  In addition to her teaching and advising activities, Dr. Zujevic has participated in departmental projects such as Voces de Princeton, a video corpus of the University’s Spanish-speaking community, and served as Co-representative of the Spanish Language Lecturers (September 2019-Summer 2021). 

In the summer of 2021, Dr. Zujevic will be relocating to England with her family, where she will continue to pursue her professional goals in the fields of education and cultural studies.
