Nita Luci

Professor of Anthropology

My idea had been, why live in Pristina when I can live in New York? But when I came back, I realized I'd rather teach here than teach somewhere else. I think that is kind of indicative of a lot of people of my generation who wanted to engage with the changes that were going on after the war.
