Her research work has been published in a variety of journals and books in Europe and the USA. In addition, she has over 15 years of experience working internationally in the cultural sector, with the focus of strengthening the position of artists in society and freedom of expression.

Bojana is a board member of On-the-move, cultural mobility information network with 50+ members in over 20 countries across Europe and internationally, and she is part of the Advisory Board of TransCultural Exchange - a non-profit organization based in Boston, with a mission to foster a greater understanding of world cultures through high-quality art projects, cultural exchanges, and educational programming.

With the restrictions of the new normal, Bojana finally has the time to go through all the documents and finish the research on Timothy Leary that she started in 2018 in the New York Public Library. For the rest, she divides her time between writing a graphic novel and working as a program advisor of TransArtists, the international platform on artists-in-residence programmes, managed by DutchCulture, centre for international cooperation.
