    Pogranicze i prowincja kontra prowincjonalizm. Lekcja Krzysztofa Czyżewskiego
    (Wydawnictwo Uniwersytetu Rzeszowskiego, 2019) Korwin-Piotrowska, Dorota
    The paper concerns a book by Krzysztof Czyżewski entitled “A Small Center of the World” and the issues presented in it, namely those of borderland and province, of the merging of various cultures, nationalities, traditions, and religious beliefs within one space. Czyżewski is the initiator, founder, and for almost three decades an employee of the Borderland Foundation and Center in Sejny, as well as of the nearby International Center for Dialogue in Krasnogruda (both localities are situated close to the Polish-Lithuanian border). As a “practitioner of ideas”, as he tends to call himself, Czyżewski casts a new light on the issue of province by pointing out that thanks to caring for one’s own roots and for the local, it may become possible to prevent the provincialism of thinking, and that the possibilities of overcoming inter-human division accumulate in the „small centers of the world”. The paper does not only discuss the issues which are focused on in the book in question, but also refers to other works dedicated to borderlands and to the current cultural situation in Poland.

    Czas Anny Frajlich
    (Wydawnictwo Uniwersytetu Rzeszowskiego, 2019) Tański, Paweł
    Anna Frajlich has finally received a decent collection of critical studies concerning her diverse work. Born in 1942, a poet and prose writer, who has been living in the United States for years, should have received such a recognition a long time ago, as she is an intriguing artist and an important personality in the cultural life of Polish refugees. It was fortunate, therefore, that in 2018 th volume „Here I am / inhabit my own life”. Studies and sketches about the work of Anna Frajlich, edited by Wojciech Ligęza and Jolanta Pasterska was published in Kraków . The studies and sketches on the artistry of the author of Indian Summer were collected on 433 pages, the volume contains 31 papers, the collection is well composed. We have received a volume of excellent value that reads well, satisfying the hunger of intellectual curiosity and emotional greed for the voice of the American emigrant’s interpreters. That very important work perfectly fits in the literature on the subject of emigre literature, or in general – on the subject of Polish literature of the twentieth century and after 2000, bringing much needed studies on the writings of Anna Frajlich who is here and lives in our memory.

    Złudzenia mężczyzn, złudzenia kobiet – o iluzoryczności płci
    (Wydawnictwo Uniwersytetu Rzeszowskiego, 2019) Sak, Wojciech
    The review of “Delusions of Gender: The Real Science Behind Sex Differences” by Cordelia Fine presents the author’s attempt to interpret the intricacies of the scientific literature related to the relationship between the mutual influence of culture and biology (especially neurobiology) on the creation of gender differences. Cordelia Fine pays attention to the lack of conclusive research on differences between the sexes and reveals probable causes of still strong gender stereotyping such as socio-cultural beliefs, neurosexism and unfavorable conditions for gender equal education.

    Wojna (nie)opisana
    (Wydawnictwo Uniwersytetu Rzeszowskiego, 2019) Szczepaniak, Monika
    The paper is a review of the book “Rozrachunki z wojną” by Sławomir Buryła (Warszawa, Instytut Badań Literackich PAN 2017), which is devoted to the problems of literary representation of war in specific sociocultural contexts. Buryła reflects on Polish literature and pays special attention to the question: what does literature know about war and why? In addition, he diagnoses zones of silence and neglect as serious deficits within Polish war studies, particularly in the field of literary studies. The review contains a reconstruction and analysis of the argumentation provided in “Rozrachunki z wojną” as a contribution to such difficult and embarrassing topics as war, violence, genocide and “time of contempt”.
