People of African descent in Poland (Episode 52)


This story is featured in Episode 52

We have heard on POLcast about the experience of people from other countries and ethnicities living in Poland. One person who has actually done solid research in this field is Sarah Grunberg, a sociologist and professor at Ithaca College, New York, who wrote a PhD thesis at the Graduate School for Social Research of the Polish Academy of Sciences, and the University of Warsaw on Race and Identity in the Polish-African Communities of Poland.

Sarah Grunberg graduated from Ithaca College in 2008 with a degree in Culture and Communication with a focus on Media and Cultural Studies. She also completed minors in Spanish, Environmental Studies, and Sociology. Shortly after graduation, she moved to Warsaw, Poland to pursue her Masters in Sociology at the Institute of Philosophy and Sociology, Polish Academy of Sciences (2009). She has since completed her PhD at this institution.
