Seminarium i polska: dr Lucyna Marzec, UAM Poznań

Titel: Polish Women Writers in Media: a workshop

Språk: engelska


The first of two workshops, held by dr Lucyna Marzec in English, is dedicated to Polish women writers in media. Wisława Szymborska, Dorota Masłowska and Katarzyna Fetlińska represent three different strategies of medial presence. Szymborska refused to be filmed and only the Nobel Prize made her more active in media; Masłowska - both in her literary and music projects - openly dialogues and criticizes contemporary mass media and celebrity culture; Fetlińska belongs to the youngest generation of poets who cast aside the print for digital and social media.


Dr. Lucyna Marzec is a lecturer at the Institute of Polish Philology at AMU. She is the author of the monograph Po kądzieli. Gatunki pisarstwa feministycznego Jadwigi Żylińskiej (On the Distaff Side.
