In WP1, Agnieszka Sadecka will be working on exploring post-transformational dissatisfaction in Poland based on the analysis of non-fictional texts of culture. She will also contribute to case studies illustrating various aspects of neo-traditionalism, linked to influence of Catholic Church in Poland and national mythologies in Hungary. Together with Łucja Piekarska-Duraj, she is responsible for Task 3.9 in WP3, which aims at analysing images of the Self and of the Other in Polish public discourses, and more specifically, right-wing media narratives and the construction of the image of symbolic enemy.
