My research interests are in the fields of ethnicity, lived diversities, migration, everyday racism.
My PhD thesis investigated everyday encounters with difference of post-accession Polish citizens living in Britain. Based on ten months of ethnographic fieldwork combined with in-depth interviews, the research explored the complexities of Poles’ everyday practices with cultural others that reflect their understandings of racial, ethnic and cultural diversity in the British context. The research elaborated on concepts such as conviviality, everyday cosmopolitanism, everyday racism as ambivalent practices expressed by individuals, depending on a social context. It situated these complex practices within the broader context of British national hierarchies of belonging.
Recently I have worked as a Research Associate on a large European research project European Music Festivals, Public Spaces, and Cultural Diversity (FestiVersities) funded by the HERA (Humanities in the European Research Area) network as part of their joint research programme Public Spaces: Culture and Integration in Europe. I have also been involved in an interdisciplinary project documenting the experiences of local Somalis with female genital mutilation (FGM)-safeguarding services. This resulted in a launch event with local authorities, practitioners and communities, and a number of publications.
