Dr Kamila Woźniak will carry out the project “Between memory and oblivion. Czech and translated German literary testimonies on the 1945 Prague Uprising ”. The aim of the researcher is to analyze the literary image of the Prague Uprising in the context of the memorial discourse, which in the future will allow for a broader perspective of comparative literary studies.
