From 9/2017 – 7/2018:

Agata Zysiak is researching the role of social sciences in building the socialist university in postwar Poland. The project of the egalitarian and democratic institution was mainly conceptualized, discussed, and put into action by sociologists themselves. Eventually, they also became researchers who could and did diagnose the socialist university’s successes and failures.
