Introducing Our Field Editor

Kinga Pozniak - photoKinga Pozniak is an anthropologist and presently teaches at The University of Western Ontario, Canada. She received her PhD in 2011 from The University of Western Ontario. She conducts research in Poland and has published on the subject of the postsocialist transformation, memories of the socialist past, and the trajectories of postsocialist postindustrial cities. Her forthcoming book “Nowa Huta: Generations of Memory in Model Socialist Town” uses the case of a former Polish model socialist town called Nowa Huta to examine how people are experiencing the changes that have been taking place following the collapse of the socialist government in 1989 and the country’s embrace of neoliberal economic reforms.
