Magdalena Krajewska

Associate Professor of Political Science, Wingate University, USA

 

Dr Magdalena Krajewska is an Associate professor of political science at Wingate University. She received her undergraduate degree in government and economics at the London School of Economics and Political Science, and her PhD in political science at Brandeis University.

Her book, Documenting Americans: A Political History of National ID Card Proposals in the United States, published by Cambridge University Press, is the first and only comprehensive, book-length political history of national ID card proposals and developments in identity policing in the United States. The book focuses on the period from 1915 to 2016, including the post-9/11 debates and policy decisions regarding the introduction of technologically advanced identification documents. Putting the United States in comparative perspective and connecting the vital issues of immigration and homeland security, Dr Krajewska shows how national ID card proposals have been woven into political conflict across a variety of policy fields. Findings contradict conventional wisdom, debunking two common myths: that Americans are opposed to national ID cards; and that American policymakers never propose national ID cards. Dr Krajewska draws on extensive archival research; high-level interviews with politicians, policymakers, and ID card technology experts in Washington, DC and London; and public opinion polls.
