Anna Draniewicz, Ph.D.

Research Fellow, 2019-2020

Dr. Anna Draniewicz was the 2019-2020 Research Fellow in Polish Studies. During her fellowship, she researched how Polish cult films helped to overthrow communism in Poland and organized an eight film virtual festival, Comedy vs. Communism: A Retrospective of Polish Cult Comedies from Communist Times, which celebrated film as a tool of resistance to totalitarian tyranny and political satire as a means of beginning the process of reestablishing political liberty.
