My name is Paula Borowska. I am a PhD researcher at UCL School of Slavonic and East European Studies. My current research focuses on how faith communities can generate social capital and affect the wider society.
Currently, I am based in a lovely area of St Albans. Originally, I come from Bialystok, the borderland region of Podlasie (Poland), a truly fascinating, historically rich and culturally diverse site in Poland. Yes, the landscape of Hertfordshire reminds me that of Podlasie.
I am blogging mainly about my current study as well as other subjects. Recently, the sociological perspectives on social capital, health, and illness have been sparking my academic interests too.
My current doctoral 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.
