The Collection

The Bauman Institute is the home of a unique collection of published and unpublished works by Professor Zygmunt Bauman.

The Bauman Institute Collection is a large, dynamic collection of material that will continue to grow as we gather together evermore books and articles by and about the life and works of Zygmunt Bauman. The Collection already includes original copies of Bauman’s published monographs, a selection of his contributions to edited collections, and his published articles, all in a variety of languages. We are also very fortunate to have some examples of his professional correspondence, personal annotations of work, and working drafts of some of his books, lectures and articles in his personal notebooks.

The Bauman Institute Collection is also delighted to be able to include the writings and personal papers of Janina Bauman.

Under the guidance of Chris Sheppard, this fantastic resource has been collated and is cared for by the Brotherton Library’s Special Collections Team and offers a unique resource for scholars and students from across the world.
