Department of Rhetoric and Media
The activity of the Department of Rhetoric and Media focuses on research, didactic and organizational activities. The research focuses on phenomena from the field of literature and popular culture, connections between literature and media, media communication, as well as rhetoric theory and practice.
Philology for Media
This specialization is aimed at students interested in professional training in the field of advertising, public relations and media (film, cultural periodicals, newspapers, TV).
Laboratory of History and Theory of Rhetoric
The Laboratory was created in 2002. It publishes books and monographs (Studies and Materials series) and serial publications (Forum Artis Rhetoricae quarterly). The Laboratory cooperates with the Laboratory of Mythopoetics and Philosophy of Literature at the University of Zielona Góra, the Laboratory of Popular Literature and Culture and New Media at the University of Wrocław, and the Laboratory of Oral Culture at the University of Wrocław. The Laboratory also organizes inter alia conferences and research projects.
The Film Club, named in honour of the Polish director Jolanta Słobodzian, was created in order to commemorate the work of this tireless film educator. In the 1980s and 1990s Słobodzian showed young people in Poland that cinema can shape our sensitivity, and help to survive even the most difficult moments. We want to continue her mission through the organization of meetings in schools and at universities, as well as publishing activities.
Media Critique Club
The Student Media Critique Club has, since its inauguration, been involved in the creation of a positive image of the Faculty of Polish Studies. In the last few years, we have been able to successfully animate the student community through the organization of cultural and education events. Worth mentioning are among others: PornoPolon – an event promoting love literature and „Barańczak – postcard from this world,” a panel dedicated to the memory of the Poet.
