She lived and taught on three continents - Europe, the United States and Australia. Before coming to the UWA School of Design she taught at Yale, MIT, and the University of Virginia. Tijana does a-disciplinary research in the history and theory of the built environment, spanning issues in architecture, social history, art, literary studies and cultural geography, focusing primarily on socialist interpretations of architecture, nature, and the environment. Her first book on the Russian 1920s and the 1930s, 'Modernism and the Making of the Soviet New Man' has been come out in 2017 with Manchester University Press.
