Morana Čaušević-Bully, appointed Chevalier dans l’ordre des Palmes académiques

On 5 November 2021, Morana Čaušević-Bully received the insignia of Chevalier dans l’ordre des Palmes académiques from the hands of the French Ambassador to Croatia, Gaël Veyssière, in recognition of her work to promote knowledge and Franco-Croatian scientific and academic cooperation


The ceremony, organised for the occasion, took place at the French Embassy in Croatia, in Zagreb.
His participation in Franco-Croatian research began in 2002 within the framework of the Salona (Split) mission, which was then supported by the École française de Rome and the Split Archaeological Museum. A scholarship obtained in 2004 at the École française de Rome and the extremely stimulating exchanges on the problems of Late Antiquity with Noël Duval during his stay had a decisive impact on Morana’s vocation to carry out doctoral research on Late Antiquity in the Kvarner region of Croatia. Her Franco-Croatian career was also marked by a long collaboration on the excavation of the St. Peter’s Monastery in Osor (between 2006 and 2017), directed by S. Bully (CNRS-UMR ARTEHIS), M. Jurković and I. Marić (IRCLAMA centre of the University of Zagreb).
Since her thesis in cotutelle between the University of Paris-Est and the University of Zagreb defended in 2013, she has developed Franco-Croatian research programmes, first as a member of the French School of Rome (2013-2014), then as a teacher-researcher at the University of Franche-Comté - UMR Chrono-environnement since 2014, She has always promoted close collaboration between the two countries through exchanges between researchers, the hosting of students, the organisation of workshops and work camps, as well as scientific meetings and exhibitions.
The latest research programmes she co-directs, with the French School of Rome, with the support of the ISITE-UBFC or very recently within the framework of the ANR MONACORALE, are part of the continuity of her actions, which have allowed her to be honoured with this fine distinction.
