Joining In The March

Professor honors victims of the 1995 Srebrenica genocide

Springfield, Ohio – Keith Doubt, Wittenberg professor of sociology, recently participated in Marš Mira, a three-day, 63-mile annual walk to honor the victims of the 1995 Srebrenica genocide.

"I want to show solidarity with people who lost their lives, but also those who managed to save themselves, crossing this difficult road from Srebrenica to Tuzla. That's why it's not difficult for me to walk," Doubt said in Dnevni avaz, the leading newspaper based in Sarajevo and published in Bosnia, Herzegovina and Germany.

Doubt, who joined the Wittenberg faculty in 2000, has conducted extensive research and has authored five books on the sociological impact of war and genocide following the Balkan War, which led to the break-up of the former Yugoslavia. His research has expanded to include culture, literature and social structures in the region.

In 2007, Doubt taught at the University of Innsbruck in Austria thanks to a Fulbright award, and in 2001 he received a Fulbright Lecturing Award that allowed him to teach in the faculty of political science at the University of Sarajevo in Bosnia. He just finished his term as a lecturer at the University of Tuzla in Bosnia-Herzegovinia in the Department of English Language and Literature through a Flex Grant from the Fulbright program.
