This lecture explores how nationalist discourse in contemporary Poland is not only gendered, but also overlaid with ideas of domestic purity threatened by a decaying West. Agnieszka Graff is one of the best-known writers on issues of gender and feminism in Eastern Europe, thanks to her ability to present them in clear and engaging – and provocative – prose. Great for those interested in questions of gender politics, as well as to students interested in Poland and Eastern Europe.
