A guide to the New East

Michał Murawski


  • Michał Murawski is Leverhulme Early Career Fellow at the Department of Russian, Queen Mary, University of London. He completed his PhD in Social Anthropology at Cambridge in 2014. With a focus on Warsaw and Moscow, his work examines how communist spectres – aesthetic as well as political ones – continue to haunt the everyday lives of East European cities. He is currently completing his book, Palace Complex: Stalinist Architectural Afterlives in Post-Socialist Warsaw, soon to appear with Indiana University press.
