Between Us. Polish Fears in the Media and Mass-Culture

Between Us. Polish Fears in the Media and Mass-Culture

Online event
Join this meeting on Zoom (link will be activated on the day of the event):

The fear of the unknown, the fear of toppling the myths on which we are building our identities, the fear of confrontation with uncomfortable and difficult truths, the fear of revealing shameful facts from the past, the fear of criticism which strikes the positive image we have been building with effort… These fears function on both an individual and collective level. They influence our reactions, our relations with others, and the narratives of ourselves. What are the Polish fears relating to minorities and the changes in the contemporary world?
