Sylabus przedmiotu dla studentów rozpoczynających studia od roku akademickiego 19/20:

European Studies

Skrócony opis: (tylko po angielsku)

The goal of the course is to explore various forms of cultural expression in the region of Central and Eastern Europe, which illustrate a variety of social and cultural processes occurring after the fall of communism. The vibrant film, theatre and literary cultures, its multiple genres and artistic forms serve as a way to interrogate the fast change of the twentieth century and different transformation periods, and critically reflect on past and present. They feature personal, subjective stories of individuals coping with the new realities, and at the same time, reveal larger narratives characteristic of CEE societies. The course will be divided in four parts: the first one will be theoretical, defining basic concepts of culture, as well as delineating the larger context. The three other parts will explore different forms of culture - everyday life, food and drink culture, visual and performative arts, and literature. As part of the course, students will be acquainted with text of culture, including film, fiction and nonfiction from 20th and 21st century.
