Anna is the author of Eco-realism: From Ecocriticism to Zoocriticism in Polish Literature (Katowice, 2016) and Animal Narratives and Culture: Vulnerable Realism (Newcastle, 2017). He research explores the fields of animal studies and environmental humanities. Her most recent project 'Socio-Cultural Constructions of Vulnerability and Resilience. German and Polish Perceptions of Threatening Aquatic Phenomena in Odra River Regions' (CultCon, 2016-2018) was supported by the Polish and German Research Foundations and conducted in cooperation with The Leibniz Institute for Research on Society and Space in Erkner. Anna’s next publication will discuss problems such as representing non-humans in the postnatural world, or referring to the hazardous environmental change through the texts of culture.
The project funded for Anna’s Marie Skłodowska-Curie COFUND fellowship at the Trinity Long Room Hub is entitled ‘Landscapes in the Soviet Era: Environmental History and Cultural Memory of 1928-1991’. It considers the twentieth century’s environmental history of Central and Eastern Europe entangled with the memory of crimes committed by the regimes of Stalin and Hitler, as well as the communist era. It involves the ecocritical analysis of landscapes by means of historical and cultural case studies.
