I earned my PhD in Social Anthropology at the University of Manchester in 2014 with a thesis on tourism encounters, identities and moral communities in the Masurian Lake District, Northeast Poland (Title: ‘The Moral work of Tourismship. Ethnographic Tales of Late Post-Socialism from the Masurian Lake District). I am also a trained Historian.

Publications from my doctoral research concern among others how rural hosts in Masuria deal with growing inequality in domestic tourism and how Western tourists imagine the rural “East”. I discuss local interplays between social and cultural fictions of self and other.

Another aspect of my research are socialist and post-socialist histories of manor houses in former East Prussia: I explore paradigms of (re-)construction, reflect on architectural imaginaries and the social performance of castles, dwell on questions around regimes of ownership and the politics of development. My work on manor houses in late post-socialism contributes to the anthropology of architecture and imagination.

I have further been engaging with sailing cultures and the shifting paradigms of sailing education and “the sailor” in Poland, especially in the Masurian Lake District. My interest with this concerns inter- and intra-generational moral debates in times of commercialization and individualization. I am also looking at cultures of sociality, at questions of elitism, transgression, democracy and citizenship.

In our edited volume “Eden für jeden. Sehnsuchtsorte in Mittel-und Osteuropa von 1945 bis zur Gegenwart”, Historian dr. Bianca Hoenig and I introduce the notion of Sehnsuchtsorte/ Places of Longing. Drawing on our research about tourism mobilities and historical ruptures in Central and Eastern Europe, we propose Sehnsuchtsorte as a new, productive thinking tool for unpacking the complex emotional and geo-political relations between people and places. The book argues for the subversive potential of tourism Sehnsucht, for its capacity to host alternative histories and visions of the future. Since working on this publication, I have become interested in longing and places of longing also in a broader anthropological context, an area that I am currently furthering.

I have published short introductory pieces about virtual reality, sketching and comics in anthropology, and collaborative ethnography.

My work as anthropologist includes creative practice, cultural activism, journalism, writing facilitation and policy advice. I am the initiator and current director of the palace festival STN:ORT and carry out applied projects via my initiative FairerTales.

I have carried out field research in the Masurian Lake District and in Manchester.

Ph.D., Dr. habil., fellow of the Polish Academy of Sciences, professor emeritus of anthropology, born in 1943 in the Lower Silesian village of Dąbrowa Górna (Ober Dammer), near town of Lubin. He studied ethnography at the Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan, especially Latin American issues, under the supervision of professor Maria Frankowska, the founder of Polish Americanistic studies. After graduation in 1965, he worked at the Institute for the Western Affairs and then started his doctorate studies, completed in 1974 at the same university. In 1982 he got the higher doctorate (Doctor Habilitatus) at the Institute of Archaeology and Ethnology (one of the research center of the Polish Academy of Sciences) in Warsaw. He worked for this institution for many years as a researcher and at the same time for the Poznań university as an academic teacher. In 1992 he achieved the highest academic rank in Poland – the title of State professor,  awarded by the President.

He mastered his anthropological competences in Spain, Germany, Russia, but mostly in the U.S.A, where he was twice affiliated with the University of Minnesota (as a grantee of Kosciusko Foundation and Fulbright Foundation), and with University of Chicago (as a grantee of American Council of Learned Societies.  In 2007 he was elected to the Polish Academy of Sciences (PAN), and in 2010 he also became the fellow of the Polish Academy of Art and Sciences (PAU). In the period between 1993-2007 he served as a chairman of the Department of Ethnology and Cultural Anthropology at the University of Poznan. After his retirement in 2013, is still active in the life of academia and functions at the university as a professor emeritus. He has promoted 15 doctors,  published a couple of books as author and editor, as well as many articles and chapters. He has been for several years the chairman of the Committee of Ethnological Sciences, at the Polish Academy of Sciences (the highest official representation of anthropologists and ethnologists in the country).

His research interest embraces a few different fields: ethnicity and migration studies (including Polish diaspora), history of ethnology and anthropology (Polish experiences mostly), and the main area – Latin American studies (studies of native peoples of the Andes). He carried out field works in the United States, Kazakhstan, Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador and Chile. He was decorated with the Golden Cross of Merit (2014), and Gold Medal for Long-standing Service (2011). His more detailed academic biography and list of research achievements has been presented in a jubilee volume (Ethnos and Potentia) published in 2013, as well as in the documentary movie released in 2015 as part of the cycle “Outstanding University People” .

In 2014 I completed my Ph.D. in Social Anthropology with Visual Media at the University of Manchester. I joined the AMU in March 2016.

My work is driven by the conviction that anthropology is particularly suited is to seek answers to some of the fundamental questions about human and non-human beings and the conditions of our co-existence and collective future. My interests are considerably wide, but they coalesce in particular themes, including subjectivity, the transformation of self and others, ethics and religion. For a long time, I have been fascinated with creative practice in art and anthropology and the use of experimental methods of research and representation in social sciences.

From 2007 to 2015 I have done research on personal and collective projects of transformation, particularly in the context of Polish-Jewish experiences, exploring the questions of relatedness and belonging and the phenomenon of the Jewish revival in Poland.  Much of my research on conversion to Judaism explored the relationship between religion, ethics, and law, but I also touched on the question of encounters with radical alterity. I conducted ethnographic fieldwork in Poland, Israel and United Kingdom. More recently I was also involved, as a filmmaker, in a visual anthropology project on the activism of migrants and ethnic minorities in Europe and explored the creative potential of contemporary sensory media art for anthropological research and representation. Back when I was still a graduate student at AMU, my  MA research  was on Haiti, where I conducted short fieldwork and for the first used visual media as a research tool. This experience directly or indirectly informed much of my later work.

I am currently developing a research project to explore and understand the ontological and ethical implications of rapid technological development in the fields of robotics and AI.

My most important audiovisual works are listed under the „Other” tab.

After finishing my Masters, I started working in marketing – first abroad, later in Poland. This is when my fascination with the reality and language of the business and political elites, and the performative discourses of Polish capitalism began, which eventually led to work on my doctoral thesis (when I had a chance to analyze Euro 2012 as a grand modernization project and a test for state and regional democracy).

I am interested in anthropological theory. I have worked within the field of economic anthropology on various levels, including the negotiation of power and modernisation narratives, especially in Europe’s postsocialist countries. More recently, I have devoted more time to the issue of climate change, along with a critical analysis of its cultural premises and local reactions to it (esp. in Scandinavia). Above all, I am interested in imagining and learning new ways of writing about future.

I specialise in food anthropology and anthropology of childhood. I am a Post-doctoral Research Associate at the SOAS Food Studies Centre and a member of the Interdisciplinary Team on Childhood Research at the University of Warsaw. My PhD was focused on the negotiations regarding feeding children in Warsaw. I studied different social actors, namely families, primary schools, other state institutions, food industry, non-governmental organisations and media. The thesis discussed diverse moral perspectives on food, discourses and narratives about food and children, multiple experiences and practices related to feeding and eating embedded in the context of post-socialist transformation, shifting notions of parenthood and childhood, and the changing politics of food and food education in Poland. My other interests include research methodologies (especially when working with children), critical nutrition studies and post-socialist studies. Currently, I am starting my adventure with medical anthropology with my new research project on the social dynamics of childhood obesity in Poland.
