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 engagement/disengagement with civil society, particularly in Belarus and Ukraine.

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 findings regarding the main area of my interest that is religion in the Central-Eastern Europe and former Soviet countries.

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.
