I’m a PhD student at the university of Alabama in the field of Biocultural Medical Anthropology. My main subject area of interest is Disability Studies and my main cultural/regional area of interest is Poland.
Here’s my bio on the UA website: http://anthropology.ua.edu/graduate-student-profiles/mirjam-holleman/
On this blog I will be writing about my current research in Poland. I plan to upload some essays I have written, or will write, pertaining to this dissertation research, in the Theory and Methodology sections. The Field Research Poland 2015 & 2016 section will be my field research journal with thoughts and reflections ‘live from the field’ My hope is that, particularly my Polish, friends will read this section (before anything gets published in academic journals) and offer constructive criticism if my assumptions/observations and interpretations seem to be incorrect.
