Introduction to Polish Culture

This course invites participants to discover modern Poland from many perspectives: from historical experience to cultural tradition and artistic innovation. Topics covered include the complex memories of the Second World War, the communist period and the migratory experience, the Jewish and Turkic influences that enrich Poland's culture, the country's folk traditions and its cutting-edge experimental art. Along the way, it examines the work of a wide variety of internationally renowned Polish artists, from the theatrical revolutionaries Grotowski and Kantor to the Oscar-winning filmmakers Wajda and PolaƄski.
The course is intended for a wide audience with a general interest in the countries of Eastern Europe and Poland in particular. The sessions are delivered in English by staff of Trinity College and special guest lecturers.
