“Zygmunt Bauman, born in Poznan, Poland, is one of Europe’s most influential sociologists and is currently Emeritus Professor of Sociology at Leeds University. Since 1971, he has resided in England after being driven out of Poland by an anti-Semitic campaign, engineered by the Communist government which he had previously supported. Bauman’s published work extends to 57 books and well over a hundred articles. Bauman was awarded the European Amalfi Prize for Sociology and Social Sciences in 1992 and the Theodor W. Adorno Award of the city of Frankfurt in 1998. He has been awarded in 2010, the Príncipe de Asturias Prize for Communication and the Humanities. The University of Leeds launched The Bauman Institute within its School of Sociology and Social Policy in Bauman’s honour in September 2010“.
