The Kosciuszko Foundation online programs present a webinar in the Polish Contemporary Literature series My Country’s Other Names: Poland’s New Wave Poets of the 1970s. The event includes talk by Jarosław Anders followed by a discussion moderated by Dr. Małgorzata Pośpiech.
In the late 1960s a new poetic formation emerged in Poland, known as “New Wave” or “Generation 1968”. The talk will cover works by Adam Zagajewski, Stanislaw Baranczak, Ryszard Krynicki, and Ewa Lipska. Jaroslaw Anders speaks about the group’s origins, discusses their literary concepts, and recalls the political and ethical atmosphere they helped to shape.
The webinar is co-organized together with the Polish Program at CUNY Hunter College.
This is a free public event
