Michał Machalski

Year of Enrollment: 

Michał received a BA in History from the University of Wrocław and an MA in Comparative History from the Department of Medieval Studies at Central European University. During his Master's he was focusing on the depiction of kinship, friendship, and lordship in the earliest chronicles of Bohemia, Poland, and Hungary.

For his doctoral research, he has now moved forward in time and is looking at the impact of 13th-century socio-economic transformation on exercising ducal authority and creating trust in fragmented Poland.

His research interests include Central European chronicles, Legal Anthropology, Medieval literacy, and the historiography of Medieval State.
