Kraków in Literature

We encourage all to stop by the International Cultural Centre for an interesting discussion on Kraków in Literature, which will take place on Monday, May 30th at 15:30, as part of the Krakow and the World 25th anniversary conference of the ICC.

Gaja Grzegorzewska, Eva Hoffman, James Hopkin and Alois Woldan will discuss the questions: What literary representations of Kraków have been created? Are the images of the city originated and developed by Polish writers considerably different from those conveyed by foreign authors? Is the myth of Kraków as a symbol of the nation’s viability and its artistic milieu still alive and well? Or has it perhaps been superseded by other narratives? Is it an arena where various memories and identities (Polish, Jewish; Galician; those of the intelligentsia, the working class and the bourgeoisie) clash with each other? What is the cultural potential of today’s Kraków?

For more informatio nabout the conference, we invite you to visit to the ICC website.
