Nina Gjoci’s work focuses on the relationship of public memory to international development and media. Particularly, she observes public discourse about debatable historical accounts, places of memory, archives, media coverage, and related public policy. Her writings have been published in several journals and volumes. Her most recent work appears in E-REA Revue Électronique d'études sur le monde Anglophone (2021), Intercultural Public Remembering: Contesting Place, Space, and Memory (2021), and Journal of Intercultural Communication (2020).
She is currently investigating how remembering local and national trauma is primarily being shaped in interplay with international actors and political agendas. She examines how the tensions from the communist past in South East Europe are manifested in the reconciliation and justice reforms, the Cold War connections and conflicts, and the ways in which the totalizing discourse of Euro-Atlantic integration is instrumentalized to diffuse the memory of communist regimes’ crimes and their thousands of victims.
She has taught communication, media, and research methods courses at universities in the US and abroad.
