About me

4FE0A1E7-1834-4396-A947-629430323397My name is Paula Borowska. I am a PhD student at School of Slavonic and East European Studies, UCL. My research focuses on the Protestant minorities in the post-Soviet countries and their civic engagement in the post-Soviet Belarus. More broadly, I am interested in the global emergence of Protestant Christianity.

Originally, I come from Bialystok, a city near Poland-Belarus border, Podlasie region which historically had always been culturally and religiously diverse. The region has been a home for Christians (Catholics, Orthodox, various Protestant confessions), Jews and Muslims, but also various ethnic minorities for a very long time.

I am blogging mainly about my current research. That includes the progress of my study trips and pilot research in Belarus, but also some other topics that cover religion-related topics, including the globalisation of Protestantism.

My project is funded by the London Arts & Humanities Partnership (LAHP).

Hopefully, this blog will be an interesting record of my work and you will enjoy reading it.
