About Me

My doctoral dissertation investigated the cultural phenomenon of astrological almanacs, particularly almanac annotations, combining a microhistorical study of the vernacular practice of almanac-keeping with a broader reflection on the shift in the temporal regime linked to the scientific revolution of the 17th century, and its consequences for early modern modes of rationality, production of memory and techniques of the self.

My research interests include:

1. Anthropology of time: historicity of time perception; modernity as temporality
2. Old Polish culture: history of cheap print and its readership; early modern encyclopaedias
3. Music as social practice: music and politics; music and scopic regimes

Currently, I am a Swiss Excellence Grant Fellow at the Institute of History, University of Bern, Switzerland, where I am studying early modern archival sources in the context of care, temporality and environment.
