Pol­ish lit­er­a­ture and nation­al iden­ti­ty: a post­colo­nial land­scape
A post­colo­nial study of Pol­ish lit­er­a­ture from Roman­ti­cism to the twen­ty-first cen­tu­ry
For near­ly half a cen­tu­ry East-Cen­tral Europe was part of the Sovi­et empire and was sub­ject to its „civ­i­liz­ing“ mis­sion. Despite its colo­nial sta­tus, this part of the world has escaped the atten­tion of most post­colo­nial crit­ics and remains a blank spot in glob­al stud­ies of post­colo­nial­ism. Dar­iusz Sko­r­czews­ki is among the first schol­ars to apply post­colo­nial thought to Pol­ish real­i­ties, at the same time mod­i­fy­ing the the­o­ret­i­cal frame­work devel­oped by oth­er schol­ars of post­colo­nial­ism. Pol­ish Lit­er­a­ture and Nation­al Iden­ti­ty reveals how the expe­ri­ences of for­eign dom­i­na­tion and the his­to­ry of empire have shaped con­tem­po­rary Pol­ish cul­ture and soci­ety.
The book, new­ly trans­lat­ed from the Pol­ish, intro­duces Anglo­phone audi­ences to the poten­tial impli­ca­tions of post­colo­nial stud­ies on an under­stand­ing of Poland’s unique his­tor­i­cal posi­tion with­in Europe. Sko­r­czews­ki explores trans­for­ma­tions of nation­al iden­ti­ty as reflect­ed in Pol­ish lit­er­a­ture and crit­i­cal dis­course from Roman­ti­cism to the twen­ty-first cen­tu­ry. The nar­ra­tive thus tack­les ques­tions sur­round­ing Poland’s post­colo­nial sta­tus in con­tem­po­rary East-Cen­tral Europe, a region where glob­al­iza­tion and cos­mopoli­tanism clash with resur­gent nation­al sen­ti­ments and where pre­dic­tions about a speedy tran­si­tion to a post­na­tion­al era now seem pre­ma­ture.

»Truth« and fic­tion: con­spir­a­cy the­o­ries in East­ern Euro­pean cul­ture and lit­er­a­ture
Sev­er­al of the most pro­lif­ic and influ­en­tial con­spir­a­cy the­o­ries have orig­i­nat­ed in East­ern Europe. The far reach­ing influ­ence of con­spir­a­cy nar­ra­tives can be observed in recent devel­op­ments in Poland or with regard to the wars waged in East­ern Ukraine and in for­mer Yugoslavia. This vol­ume analy­ses the his­to­ry behind this wide­spread phe­nom­e­non as well the role it has played in East­ern Euro­pean cul­tures and lit­er­a­ture both past and present.
