Former Seed Money Fellow at the Platform "Transfromations and Eastern Europe" and an associate researcher at RECET.
Research project at RECET:
"Dialogic class formation through cultural consumption: Towards comparative cultural history of postsocialism"
The project will amplify the notion of cultural capital as a tool of distinction of social groups. Class structure, present even during the state socialist rule despite the communist dictatorship, re-emerged as an important societal marker during the postsocialism. The project will illuminate the hegemonic discourses about inequality at work in the culture produced by and for people, who may be understood as making parts of rural and semi-rural communities in East Central Europe. It will focus on the shifts in class structure and the stress on the new dichotomies that have emerged in the narratives of postsocialist societies. Such dichotomies include those between central and peripheral regions and between the post-socialist urban and rural communities.
