‘Oral History in Central-Eastern Europe’ Conference Fund

Marta Marciniak (PhD – University at Buffalo, SUNY), who previously presented a paper on Polish punk music and the politics during the PMC’s Sounds from Behind the Iron Curtain: Polish Music after World War II Conference in April 2013, is currently seeking funding to attend a new conference on the subject of “Oral History in Central-Eastern Europe: Current Research Areas, Challenges and Specificity” at the University of Łódź. After a lengthy and costly immigration process, Marciniak is finally able to return to her life’s passion, which is researching and telling the stories of those she interviews as an oral historian. It is also a rare opportunity to promote her book, A Transnational History of Punk in Poland: From Nihilism to Nothing Outside Punk (Lexington Books), which will be published in June 2015.

Please consider contributing to Marta’s scholarly www.gofundme.com campaign.
