On Friday, 23 March, Marcin Wróbel (Cracow, Poland) will talk about Community Shepherding in Poland: Network dynamics and Temporal Territorialization (Antia Palace, 3:30 pm). According to Wróbel, "contemporary community shepherding in Poland is a curious case of an archaic approach towardds land usage, based on long-lasting, hundres years old patterns. What differs it from other agricultural activities is the half-nomadic way of living that shepherds still cultivate, accompanied with numerous idiosyncratic customs, beliefs and practices". His presentation will be based on the results of field work conducted in 2016 and 2017.
Marcin Wróbel is a JD candidate in the Department of Sociology of Law, Faculty of Law and Administration at the Jagiellonian University of Cracow. He is also a part-time lecturer at the same institution.
