About this product
- DescriptionFor centuries, migration has been part of Polish history. In recent decades, however, migration patterns have intensified and undergone significant changes, especially after the fall of the Iron Curtain in 1989/90 and Poland's accession to the European Union in 2004. This collection of essays is the first to explicitly address the cultural impact of Polish migration to three European countries that have absorbed the major part of the recent exodus: Germany, Ireland, and UK. The volume analyses cultural activities of Poles abroad, explores topical trends in Polish migrant literature, and discusses the representation of migrants in film. By opening up a decidedly cultural perspective, the essays hope to break new ground and enrich the scientific discourse on migration in the European context.
