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.
