Our colleague and friend Andrzej W. Nowak from Adam Mickiewicz University (Uniwersytet im. Adama Mickiewicza w Poznaniu) in Poznań, Poland, is joining the blog as a Guest Blogger.
Please welcome him.
I’ll introduce him through a bit of information that he sent me recently. He shared with me this 3-min film, which briefly shows the police’s violence at the Economic University in Poznan, PL. The police attacked a small group of people peacefully protesting against a pseudo-‘scientific’ lecture (“gender as a destruction of the human and the family”) delivered by a priest (& lecturer from theology dept at Adam Mickiewicz University).
The event took place on 5th Dec. Unfortunately, Andrzej couldn’t find any news in English.
Andrzej is falsely accused in Polish right wing blogs as well as a few newspaper as a hooligan; someone who was main provocateur of this event. Just the right sort of company for us on the blog!
*And the photo above was taken at the event by one of Andrzej’s friends.
P.s., when I first asked Andrzej to join the blog he wrote back: “I don’t have time to make science when I really did STS and State exercise (batons, shield, electroshocks)” (!)

Glad you are joining us. More scholars trying to get disciplines to talk to each other! Great first blog–looking forward to more details on your work.
Same here! Should be a great month for infrastructure.
Andrzej! A very warm welcome to installing (social) order. I am looking forward to your posts!
This is Nicholas: let me modify the original post a bit:

Emphasis on “falsely”!
