Doctoral Student at the Institute of Sociology, Jagiellonian University, Kraków, Poland. Sociologist with a background in cultural studies. Natalia has a strong interest in urban everyday life and creative methodological approaches for studying its varied spatialities and temporalities. Her work cuts across sociology and human geography and favors an activist approach to scholarship. Her current research focuses on everyday practices of inhabiting the city. It uses participatory, mobile, and reflexive methods to discover how homeless dwellers navigate the city and anchor their places in various urban spaces, and how their capabilities for exercising the right to stay put might be enhanced.
