Congratulations to a team led by Prof. Tomasz Basiuk that has just received a prestigious grant from the National Science Center!
The project, “Queer Theory in Transit. Reception, Translation, and Production in Polish and German Contexts,” will be carried out in cooperation with a Humboldt University Berlin team led by Prof. Eveline Kilian and researchers from Austria and Canada. The project uses Edward Said’s concept of “travelling theory” to investigate the production, reception, and translation of queer theory in Poland and Germany, particularly in terms of the challenges of adapting US-based concepts to the local European contexts. The ASC team includes Prof. Karolina Krasuska, Dr. Ludmiła Janion, Dr. Anna Kurowicka, and Dr. Krystyna Mazur.
