This week we are talking to Jasna Žmak (Department of Dramaturgy, Academy of Dramatic Art, University of Zagreb, Croatia). In addition to her academic work that spans across disciplines such as performance studies and gender studies, Žmak is also a creative artist, novelist, scriptwriter, screenwriter and dramaturg.
We talk about what her work looks like these days, how she uses her training in the humanities to create art and what keeps her striving to achieve more.
Below you'll find a selection of her recent publications.
You can follow her on Twitter and Instagram @jasnazmak.
