Petar Odak is a PhD Candidate of Gender Studies at the Central European University and the Utrecht University, working on the project that explores "The Affective Dimension of Socialist Legacies in the Context of the Experience Economy", by focusing on immersive museums and practices of historical reenactment.

His research interests include affect theory and psychoanalysis, dark tourism and postsocialist studies.
