Scholar's Bio

Professor (Assistant)
Short Bio
PhD, literary historian primarily interested in XIXth and early XXth century Central and Eastern European literature, with the core focus on women’s writings, queer literature, and transnational modernist networks. During my Ph.D. studies, I have focused on the biography and works of Polish-German modernist writer Eleonore Kalkowska (1883-1937). Core theoretical frames of my thesis arose from transnational modernism studies, exile studies, and locational feminism. Currently, I am working on the project ‘Sapphic Modernism in Women’s Writings in the Areas of the Russian Empire (Polish, Russian and Ukrainian literature)’ (OPUS research grant funded by the National Science Centre, Poland).
