IMISCOE Web Directory - Aleksandra Lewicki
Aleksandra Lewicki is a Lecturer in Sociology, a Member of the Sussex Centre for Migration Research, and Associate Editor of the Journal of Ethnic and Migration Studies (JEMS).
She joined the School of Law, Politics of Sociology in 2018. Prior to that, she held a Postdoctoral Research Fellowship at the Freie University Berlin (2016 - 2017), and worked as a Research Associate at the University of Bristol (2013 - 2015). She has an PhD in Sociology from the University of Bristol, and an MA in Politics from the University of Potsdam.
Her work investigates structural inequalities in post-colonial Europe. A particular concern lies with institutional cultures and the ways in which they reproduce contemporary notions of race. Aleksandra is interested in how race is made, by whom, and to what end - as well as what it does to those subject to its effects, but also those who are complicit in its making.
