About Katarzyna Wojnicka

About Katarzyna Wojnicka

PhD, sociologist, Research Fellow at CERGU – Centre for European Research and Department of Sociology and Work Science at the University of Gothenburg where she is involved in two research projects funded by Swedish Research Council (Vetenskapsrådet):

European fathers' rights movements: gender (in)equality discourses and politics (2019-2022)

The goal of this project is to conduct research on European fathers’ rights movements (FRMs), a particular facet of men’s social movements and their discourses on gender (in)equality as well as practices aimed at combating gender-based discrimination. Fathers’ rights groups exist in all EU countries and are the most recognizable and “powerful” phenomena among European men’s movements. However, to date, there has been a lack of sufficient research on these phenomena. Therefore, the aim of this research project is to fill the knowledge gap on European fathers’ rights movements by conducting a scientific investigation from national, comparative and transnational perspectives. The project draws on preliminary qualitative research on Polish, Swedish and British fathers' rights movements and will be enriched by new data gathered through several social research methods including quantitative and qualitative studies. Firstly, quantitative research, including groups mapping and internet-based surveys, will be conducted in all EU/EFTA states. Secondly, in-depth interviews will be conducted with movement activists from a) Germany and Spain and b) transnational organisations, and this data will then be analysed. The project will combine and contribute to the literature on social movements, critical men and masculinities studies and European studies. Aside from its theoretical, methodological and empirical significance, the project has significant societal relevance.

Transnational bachelorhood. An ethnography of singledom among migrant men in the European Union (2019 - 2021)

Transnational bachelorhood denotes the situation of single men that have migrated and become part of transnational networks of family, kin and friends. Although often represented as ‘dangerous foreign masculinities’, and although characterising a significant portion of migrants, this bachelorhood is an under-researched aspect of transnational migration. The project will investigate four groups of transnational bachelors using a multi-sited ethnographic approach: Bangladeshis and Romanians in Italy and Syrians and Poles in Sweden. The aim is to investigate and analyse the situation of these men, particularly as it pertains to belonging, transnational families, mobility and masculinity. The project is informed by an intersectional approach to space and masculinity and by a transnational perspective on family relations.

The groups we investigate vary in regards to factors identified as significant for transnational bachelorhood; for example, they come from both within and without the European Union and have arrived in countries with different attitudes to migration. A comparison of these groups will allow for a more general and complex picture of transnational bachelorhood.

A minimum of six research articles are produced as part of the project. A reference group with both Italian and Swedish members has been formed and an application for ethical approval of the project will be sent before the end of 2018.
