Meeting with the editors of “Dezorientacji. Antologii polskiej literatury queer”. The meeting with Błażej Warkocki, Alessandro Amente, and Tomasz Kaliściak, editors of the book, will be hosted by Arleta Galant.
The one hundred texts by Polish authors, from Adam Mickiewicz, Jarosław Iwaszkiewicz, and Irena Krzywicka to Inga Iwasiów and Jacek Dehnel, collected in Antologia polskiej literatury queer, represent an important part of Polish literature and society from the late eighteenth to the early twenty-first century. This anthology reveals not only representations of non-normative sexualities and genders against the backdrop of historically changing cultural norms, but also points to plots, stories, and overlooked elements of the lives of male and female authors that have so far only been discussed in narrow circles of literary scholars. The book not only discovers the unknown, but also brings back to the mainstream of Polish literature and culture important phenomena, texts and authors for the understanding of our times.
