dr Magdalena Chułek

Associated researcher

Magdalena Chułek is a PhD candidate at the Institute of Ethnology and Cultural Anthropology, Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań, and a lecturer at the Institute of Ethnology and Cultural Anthropology, University of Gdańsk. She is an anthropologist with experience in designing, organising and carrying out qualitative research. She has implemented projects in Poland, Sudan and Great Britain. In 2012, she was awarded a research grant from the National Science Centre for her research project “Help in Africa’s Slums – Local and Western Strategies in Kibera and Korogocho,” which enabled her to carry out long-term field research in Kenya. Using the method of participant observation during her several-month stay among the studied community in so-called slums, she dealt with the sociocultural process of how these spaces are created. Currently, her scientific interests comprise forced migrations, environmental migrations and strategies of adapting to changes in the natural environment, especially in refugee camps
