We are happy to announce that our Gender/Sexuality Research Group led by dr Karolina Krasuska was awarded an Excellence Initiative grant for the popularization of research. A new website with a series of podcasts will be launched at the beginning of the next academic year.

The aim of the project is to present the research of the members of the Gender/Sexuality Research Group in an accessible and exciting way. We will cover topics such as post-Soviet immigrant memory of American women (dr Krasuska), gender nonconformity in 1990s Poland (dr Janion), the body and death in speculative fiction (dr Kotwasińska), asexuality in American pop culture (dr Kurowicka), disability theory and activism (dr Pamuła), masculinity and consumption in crime fiction (dr Usiekniewicz), self-representations of girls (mgr Kamińska), bisexuality and queer activism (mgr Ziemińska) and much more.
