About Dr. Krajewska:
My name is Magdalena Krajewska and I am an Assistant Professor of Political Science at Wingate University. I joined Wingate in August 2011. I have lived in Poland, Germany, Great Britain, and the United States. I received my undergraduate degree in Government and Economics at the London School of Economics and Political Science, and my Ph.D. in Political Science at Brandeis University. I specialize in comparative and American politics. 

My doctoral dissertation, “The Politics of National Identification Documents in the United Kingdom and the United States, 1915-2010,” is a comprehensive study of the history and politics of identification documents in the United Kingdom and the United States.

I presented my work at prestigious international conferences in London, Berlin, Washington DC, Boston, Chicago, San Diego, and Seattle, and participated in invitation-only seminars in Warsaw, Washington DC, Boston, Charlottesville, and Tucson.

I received a number of academic honors and fellowships, including the Dissertation Completion Fellowship (Research Circle on Democracy and Cultural Pluralism, Brandeis University); Mellon Dissertation Summer Research Grant (Brandeis University); Jean and Robert Benjamin Endowed Fellowship in International Affairs (Brandeis University); and Humane Studies Fellowship (Institute for Humane Studies).
