Magdalena Zdrodowska

Jagiellonian University
assistant professor
Poland
Institute of Audiovisual Arts of the Jagiellonian University, Krakow, Poland, where she currently serves as an associate director. She received her PhD in arts at the Jagiellonian University in 2010. In 2005, she obtained her MA in cultural anthropology, and in 2007 her MA in film and media studies – both at Jagiellonian University. Her book Telewizja na pograniczach (Television on the borderlines, 2013) is devoted to intercultural communication potential of the television on global, regional and local scale. Now, Zdrodowska is conducting a book-length project The telephone, moving pictures, and cyborgs: mutual relations of the technology and d/Deaf communities in 20th and 21st century funded by the Polish National Centre. Its main objective is to portray complex relations between the technology and the d/Deaf communities. The project combines deaf and disability studies, history of technology, and the ethnographic field research, for which she learned – and still improving – Polish Sign Language. The outcomes of this research are published in English: Social media and Deaf empowerment: The Polish Deaf communities’ online fight for representation in Disability and Social Media. Global Perspectives, ed. Kate Ellis, Mike Kent, Routledge, 2017; and To document is to preserve: moving pictures and sign language in Documentary and Disability, ed. Helen Hughes, Catalin Brylla, Palgrave MacMillan, 2017, pp. 243-258.">Magdalena Zdrodowska is an assistant professor in the Institute of Audiovisual Arts of the Jagiellonian University, Krakow, Poland, where she currently serves as an associate director.
