Bryan L. Greene is currently a PhD Candidate in the Department of Sociology at the University of Connecticut, with research interests broadly speaking in race, racism, gender/sexuality and public policy.  He recently received a master’s degree in Sociology in 2022 from the University of Connecticut (UCONN).  He received dual bachelor’s degrees in Political Science, International Studies and African-American Studies from The Ohio State University back in 2006.  He also holds graduate degrees from The New School for Social Research (NSSR) in New York, NY, Rutgers University-Newark and The Graduate Center at the City University of New York (CUNY).  For the 2022-2023 academic year, Bryan conducted research on anti-black racism in Poland as a Fulbright US Student Researcher.  dr. hab. Monika Bobako with the Centre for Frontier Questions at Adam Mickiewicz University (Poznan, Poland) was one of two advisors for Bryan while in Poland, with the other being dr. hab. Agnieszka Kościańska ska from the Institute of Ethnology and Cultural Anthropology at the University of Warsaw (Warsaw, Poland).  Bryan’s project consists of semi-structured interviews with black/Afro Polish citizens and immigrants, looking at their lived experiences with anti-black racism which has yielded some compelling preliminary results.  Along with the interviews, he plans to implement autoethnographic methodologies to fully capture and contextualize antiblackness issues and diaspora questions in Poland.  He looks forward to presenting his work in multiple venues in Poland, the United States and elsewhere.
