The Dynamics of Religious Pluralism in Rural Southern Poland
My research primarily addresses the relation between religion and politics, and investigates the situation of minorities in the context of church-state relations in Poland. In 2008/09 I conducted ethnological fieldwork in a multireligious and multiethnic rural community. This study provides the basis for my doctoral dissertation, in which I combine ethnographic enquiry with historical analysis.
