Specialties/Research Interests:

  • 20th century Polish literature and culture; intersections of literature and philosophy; epistemology of rubbish; philosophy of language; postwar Polish cinema; contemporary Czech cinema.

I am currently working on revising my dissertation for publication as a book. Based on the interdisciplinary approach investigating intersections of literature and philosophy, my project focuses on the philosophical potential inherent in the works of Miron Białoszewski and Tadeusz Różewicz and examines ways in which this potential is relevant to contemporary discussions in epistemology.

My second project, on which I have recently embarked, centers on morality and ethics in postwar Polish film, with a special focus on how cinematic works of this period explore the notion of moral conduct and foreground ambiguities of evil.
