At this time last year, professors Erica Lehrer (Concordia University) and Roma Sendyka (Jagiellonian University) worked with Polish Studies students in collaboration with Magdalena Zych, curator at the Kraków Ethnographic Museum (MEK), to intervene in the museum’s approach to Poland’s folk culture. Their goal was to bring the ethnic diversity and “difficult knowledge” of village life back into view. Lehrer and Sendyka will present their forthcoming book about the intervention, with photos by Jason Francisco and contributions from students and others, and discuss it with MEK curators and participants in the experiment.
