W Polsce przypada średnio 2,4 lekarza w przeliczeniu na tysiąc mieszkańców (Eurostat 2020) i tym samym Polska zajmuje ostatnie miejsce w Unii Europejskiej pod względem liczby lekarzy (OECD 2019). Podobnie niekorzystnie wyglądają dane dotyczące liczby pielęgniarek i położnych. Problem ten wydaje się wyjątkowo palący w kontekście trwającego kryzysu e...
Article
Intercultural communication has become increasingly important due to the growing internationalization of higher education, even outside the English-speaking world. Similar to multinational corporations, academic environments are believed to be one of the best examples of a social space where English is a lingua franca. In this paper, we question th...

Article
The skill-attracting policies encouraging the internationalisation of higher education are compatible with a modernisation discourse, at the heart of which lies a belief that international researchers are highly embedded super-achievers allured by targeted policies. By focusing on the life stories of foreign-born scholars working in Poland (100 in-...

While the migration flows between global centres and aspiring higher education systems are increasing, the flow of academics to the peripheries remains largely under-researched. Poland is cert...

The paper is based on 100 qualitative in-depth interviews conducted in Poland and 40 interviews condu...
Article
This paper discusses the precariousness of an academic profession in contemporary Slovakia and Poland. Although some of the patterns have been previously studied, this analysis sheds new light on the problems of Polish and Slovak academia as seen by foreigners, who, according to official policy, are expected to contribute to the excellence of Polis...
Article
The Use of Social Media in Marketing Communication of Polish Universities Social media has revolutionized communication between the sender and recipient of media messages.

The sociology of culture and the sociology of valuation and evaluation are closely related (Lamont 2012). In both cases, social hierarchies are the primary, fundamental focal point. Usually, sociologists of culture show what the necessary conditions for building social boundaries in a given historical context are (see e.g. Bourdieu, 1984; Ang, 1985...
Article
This paper, based on 100 in-depth interviews conducted in Poland and another 40 in Slovakia, analyses life trajectories of foreign-born scholars who decided to pursue careers in Central Europe.

Article
Human mating strategies seem to be determined and affected by sexual selection. There is a broad spectrum of theories that try to explain even non-standard mating strategies in terms of sexual selection theory. We found non-standard mating behaviors among some part of Polish women that, as we state in our paper, work against sexual selection theory...
Article
Pierre Bourdieu uses biographical sources to a very limited extent, providing an incomplete image of popular classes (including the representation of the author's own socialization). The use of autobiographical sources from different cultures and historical periods makes it possible to discuss the relatively stable cultural patterns within the popu...
Article
The main aim of this article is to critically analyse and systematise the debate concerning non-professional subtitling of TV series and movies in some non-English-speaking countries. Most of the studies on fansubbing deal with a specific problem, and they are based on various theoretical frameworks. This paper attempts to merge them into one coher...
Article
Today, the perception of (ideal) feminity is based on a visual presentation of the (ideal) female body, including female nudes. Due to the cultural patterns, most of the recipients of visual culture rarely have an opportunity to become familiar with a variety of representations of the female body (age, body shape, stylization). The most common is t...

The purpose of this article is to demonstrate how the post-soap series that tend to break limits of the genre as a new type of high-budget productions change media images of tabooed topics such as non-normative conceptions of social roles.
