Koszalin University of Technology creates Archives of Spontaneous Political Activity

Politechnika Koszalińska

Dr Krzysztof Wasilewski, Koszalin University of Technology from the Department of Regional and European Studies with the support of the Polish Society of Political Sciences – the Koszalin branch is implementing the project “Archives of Spontaneous Political Activity”.

The aim of the project is to create a digital archive – a website that is a register of grassroots forms of spontaneous political activity of Poles. While catalogs of official memorial sites exist, grassroots and spontaneous ways of expressing political emotions remain scattered. Therefore, scientists do not know the scale of social reactions to a given event, or the variety of forms used, or even the dominant views and opinions. The need to create such a catalog seems even more justified in the era of social restrictions caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, when balconies, walls and car bodies often became the only place where political emotions could be freely demonstrated.
