Emancipatory humanities project: gender discourses

Seminar by Monika Rudaś-Grodzka

Gender criticism on the one hand emerged in Poland as the first among the so-called emancipatory criticisms and with some momentum (in its feminist variant); on the other hand, it would be hard not to note that it encountered extraordinary resistance and a full-scale attack; neither did it find universal recognition. The time has come to make a critical assessment of this criticism, as well as indicate areas in which we need it today to better understand ourselves and the world around us, in order to make favourable changes. The gender character of humanities and the university will become a separate issue.
