Archeologies of the the Public: insights into the Polish public sphere

The lecture will be aimed at providing insights into the historical development and current shape of the public sphere in Poland. It will be an attempt to conduct an archaeological study of the Polish public sphere, its specific cultural, political and discursive context. It is necessary to engage into radical and dialectic dialog with the Eurocentric notion of the public sphere, to pose the question about how public life organizes itself outside of the historical experience of core capitalist countries.
