Dr. Bożena Karwowska – Conference: The Very Beginning

Conference: Warsaw, 5-6.12.2016

The conference, “The Very Beginning: The Years 1944-1948 in Literature plakatfrom the Period of the Polish People’s Republic” provides an interdisciplinary forum for scholars to utilize modern-day analytical tools to bring to the fore the question as to how social phenomena of 1944-48 were recorded in Polish literature of the Polish People’s Republic, 1949-1989. Questions to be addressed include the ways in which both official and unofficial narratives of the Polish People’s Republic were shaped by social processes as recorded in literature of the period, and how these literary representations are socially and/or politically informed in their linguistic/textual structures.
