PI bio

I conducted long-term ethnographic fieldwork among the E’ñepá Indians of Venezuela (21 months of field research). I was interested in the role and position of school within one of the most isolated indigenous group in Venezuela. As a result of this research I published the book School in the Amazonian Forest: Forms and Meaning of Education in the Indigenous Communities (book in polish, 2018), where I described the practice of schooling in an indigenous group, the meaning ascribed to school by the E’ñepá, and the impact of schooling on the lives of people belonging to this group.
