In their current, much-criticised shape, university departments that provide education in social sciences are often presented as demented and inertia-driven institutions that hopelessly lag behind the galloping real world with its rapidly transforming social relations heavily shaped by the emergence of new technologies.
Xymena Kurowska co-authored a chapter on fieldwork in International Relations in an open-access volume Fieldwork as Failure. Living and knowing in the field of International Relations, co-edited by our former MA student, dr Katarina Kusic. The volume also features contributions by two of our current doctoral students: Johannes Gunesch and Ewa Maczynska. You can download it here.
