Natalia Pomian – an anthropologist and PhD candidate at Doctoral School of Humanities at University of Warsaw. She is working on a dissertation about infertility treatments in Poland, especially on naprotechnology. In her research she has combined an anthropological and historical perspective as she is interested in everyday life in socialist Poland. In 2020-2023 Pomian was a scholar in the NCN-founded project about Catholicism and reproduction in Poland (1930-present). Currently she is a part of the research group "Women's Archive" in the Institute of Literary Research of the Polish Academy of Sciences. Apart from academic experiences Pomian is involved in NGOs: in 2021-2023 she was a coordinator in Initiative for Afghan students at University of Warsaw and from 2023 she works in European Network Remembrance and Solidarity whose main scope is building a dialogue about common 20th-century European history.
