This workshop aims to shed light on the peripheral aspects of Poland reflected in the humanities fields such as art, literature, and language from a comparative and interdisciplinary viewpoint.
In this workshop, special attention will be paid to such regions as Kresy, Silesia, and Kashubia, which have not been studied enough in cultural studies in Japan.
The workshop will be held on January 10, 2009 at the University of Tokyo. Detailed information on the workshop will be given on the SRC's website.
The workshop consists of three sessions as follows.
First session: Literature
Second session: Art
Third session with special guests from Poland: Language
Besides these speakers and guests, Professor Numano Mitsuyoshi (University of Tokyo) is also invited as a guest speaker. Another invited speaker, Professor Jerzy Treder (University of Gdańsk), who cannot come to Japan, will send his paper for this workshop.
Thanks to Mr. Wojciech Kiedrowski, there will be a small exhibition of Kashubian books published by his publisher, Oficyna CZEC.
The workshop will be held under the auspices of the Japan Consortium for Area Studies (JCAS), cosponsored by the Embassy of the Republic of Poland in Japan, the Slavic Research Center (Hokkaido University), and the Department of Contemporary Literary Studies (University of Tokyo).
