Session Submission Type: Panel

Brief Description

This panel will be devoted to the newest (nonfictional) literature and filmography of Central and Eastern Europe that concern the issues of prejudices and the role of the recent history. Each of us is going to prepare a case study devoted to one issue. We are analyzing the voices from different regions, such as Czechia, Upper Silesia region, Slovakia, provincial Poland, and exploring such concepts as ‘locality’, 'family', ‘identity’, ‘revolution’, ‘community‘, ‘collective memory’, ‘generation‘, and ‘place‘. In our investigations, we follow the paths established i.a. by the affective turn, cultural and memory studies, and postcolonial studies.
