Online Lecture, 30.6., 18:00 (s.t.), via Zoom
Part of the lecture series "Rechtsruck in Europa. Die polnischen Perspektiven"
The talk will analyze propaganda and political discourse over the past hundred years in Poland. I intend to show, to what extent the threads making up nationalist ideology and Catholic integrationism - anti-Semitism, anti-elitism, fear of sexuality - survived the cataclysm of war and were revived first in the communist era and then in contemporary Poland.
