Dr Monika Glosowitz from the Faculty of Humanities at the University of Silesia in Katowice has been nominated for the Poznań Literary Award – Stanisław Barańczak Scholarship for the monograph entitled „Maszynerie afektywne.

Strategies of emancipation in the new Polish female poetry), published by Wydawnictwo Instytutu Badań Literackich at the Polish Academy of Sciences, 2019.

Monika Glosowitz excellently reconstructed the whole map of writing strategies in the female poetry at the turn of the 20th and 21st century. We will find here a description of a disease (including the relapse formula) based on the example of Joanna Lech, machinery of trauma and shame written through tender reading of Justyna Bargielska, anatomy of “borrowed love” by Marta Podgórnik, analysis of “affective work” in late capitalism of Kira Pietrek as well as many other daring reading pieces and interpretations.
