Ivana Arsić graduated from the University of Belgrade, earning BA (2012) and MA (2013) in Classical Studies at the Faculty of Philosophy. In 2017, she completed her PhD at the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB) during which she was introduced to the problems that characterize religious encounters and conflicts in the late medieval and early modern Crown of Aragon, such as the coexistence of multiculturalism and multiconfessionalism, secular and ecclesiastical persecution of religious minorities, and religious bureaucracy and institutions and how they impacted religious minorities.
During and after PhD studies at the UAB, she was a research fellow on Spanish projects financed by The Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness (MINECO) and the Agency for Management of University and Research Grants (AGAUR). Since October 2018, she have been a research fellow on a national project financed by the Ministry of Education, Science and Technological Development at the Institute of Social Sciences.
In November 2019 she was elected a research associate at the Institute of Social Sciences. Her results have been published in one book monograph, two co-edited monothematic volumes, and numerous peer-reviewed papers.
In 2023 she received Marie Sklodowska-Curie individual postdoctoral fellowship – within the framework of the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA), a part of Horizon Europe – for her project CONVERSAS to explore contested religious identities through a gender lens at University Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona (Spain).
