Centre for Migration Studies at Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań invites you to this month’s webinar which will be given by Anne White (University College London) titled “Poland as a country of immigration and emigration: Ukrainian factory workers' perspectives on life and work in Kalisz and Płock”. Date: Thursday 27th of January 2022, 10:00 to 11:30 (CET), online (zoom) Everyone is welcome and you can register here: https://forms.gle/FkhYYFsLKyR5YVpN8 Biogram Anne White is M. B. Grabowski Professor of Polish Studies, University College London School of Slavonic and East European Studies. From January to June 2022 she is a NAWA Ulam Scholar based at the Centre for Migration Studies, Adam Mickiewicz University of Poznań. Her research interests are migration to and from Poland as well as social change in Poland more broadly. Her books include Polish Families and Migration since EU Accession, Invisible Poles and The Impact of Migration on Poland, co-authored with I. Grabowska, P. Kaczmarczyk and K. Slany. Abstract Poland is becoming a ‘country of immigration’, while retaining its strong identity as a country which people leave to live, work and study abroad. My current research project explores interrelationships between its immigration and emigration identities in the cities of Płock, Kalisz and Piła. I interview foreigners, mostly Ukrainians, as well as Polish return migrants. This presentation is based on fieldwork in Płock (2019) and Kalisz (2021). Most of my 52 Ukrainian interviewees were factory workers, and my presentation will discuss these research participants’ thoughts about settling and family reunification in Poland, based on their experiences of life and work in the two cities. These experiences include contacts with Polish return migrants, often their co-workers in local factories. I argue that the Ukrainians’ sense of living in a geographically mobile society, where migration is viewed by Ukrainians and Poles alike as an acceptable livelihood strategy, helps shape their thoughts about whether to make their futures in Poland.

- CeBaM webinar with Nergis Canefe
Centre for Migration Studies at Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań invites you to this month’s webinar which will be given by Nergis Canefe (York University) titled Ethics of witnessing and research practices in forced migration and human rights fields. Date: Thursday 10th of June 2021, 13:30 to 15:00 (CET), online (zoom) Everyone is welcome and you can register here: https://forms.gle/UHBCoin4TnSDnJ3a6 Details about how to join the webinar will be circulated via email to registered attendees the day before the event. Abstract of Nergis Canefe presentation: This webinar will discuss capitalizing the scholar's responsibility as a witness, maximizing its potential and benefits for institutional and social change, and tracing and teaching an ethics of witnessing in its most adequate and resonant forms. Overall, if we are to defend a theory of ethics that is focused on the scholar's role in enhancing human dignity and rights against all odds, we must start with providing a road map for our students. The webinar provides case studies and examples of engaged research in dealing with humanitarian crises, rights abuses and in general situations of gross human vulnerabilities. Professor Nergis Canefe (PhD & SJD) is a Turkish-Canadian scholar of public international law, comparative politics, forced migration studies and critical human rights. She has held posts in several European and Turkish Universities and is a faculty member at York University, Canada since 2003.

Foreigners in Poland: The heterogeneity of large urban centres – A case study of Poznan Research grant from the Polish Ministry of Science and Higher Education no. N109 224836 Duration: 1.06.2009-31.05.2012 Research team: Michał Buchowski (PI) Natalia Bloch Agnieszka Chwieduk Izabella Main Jacek Schmidt The objective of the project was to produce a microsocial analysis of the phenomenon of the cultural heterogeneity of large urban centers. The research investigated transnational migrants who came to Poland while maintaining regular contact with their country of origin and with relatives remaining there. This situation has become a source of growing social diversity and social mobility, as well as a source of transnational connections which then influence the current profile of large cities. The object of the study was to identify the extent of these phenomena and to analyze them. This research, based on an ethnographic approach, intends to show the extent to which those communities which are absent from public discourses cohabit with the dominant host society. The objective is to identify migrant groups’ strategies and practices of adaptation and to show how these groups in their everyday activities become part of the social and spatial urban environment. The presence of migrants inevitably leads to exogenous cultural change, since migrants not only adopt the host society’s models but also adapt and change those models. “Culture” is, after all, realized in everyday interactions. This therefore provides an opportunity to observe the cultural practices of people living in a shared social space – these practices are diverse, yet form a comprehensive social structure. Particular groups share a multitude of behavioral practices while at the same time, but to differing degrees, maintain a sense of their own separateness and autonomy. Such diversity of intercultural relations and behaviors is subject to constant changes. We hope that this research project will enable both the identification of the direction and dynamism of these changes and also the formulation of recommendations for social policy on local and national levels in Poland.
