Person

My research interests include the political philosophies of conservatism and nationalism in Europe, particularly in Poland, Spain and the UK. Empirically I am analysing the contemporary development of conservatism in Polish politics, mainly the content of the traditionalist discourse, critical of liberal and secular aspects of European integration. Additionaly, I work with comparative studies regarding the history of conservatism in Europe and in the US.
Furthermore, I am interested in concepts such as "collective memory" and "national identity", as well as in the history of European political thought.
To a lesser degree I have also worked with the history of Yiddish culture in Eastern Europe and with questions regarding inter-religious dialogue in Poland and in Belarus.
