Culturally Mobile Academics? The Experience of Upward Mobility in a Narrative Perspective
Project Manager: Kamil Łuczaj, Ph.D.
The study is focused on the narratives of the upward mobility of scholars employed by Polish universities. The main aim of the study is to analyse the professional career paths of working-class individuals who succeeded in becoming university professors and assistant professors. The central research question is how the culture of origin (family, early socialization) and culture of destination (shaped by current social circles) affects the practices one is involved in, the goods one consumes, or the cultural values one believes in.
