The name of Department of Canadian, Intermedial and Postcolonial Studies suggests a change in the approach to literary canon, which was earlier dominated by English and American works. This situation resulted in marginalisation of other literatures in English. The scholars focus on research in the following areas of study: Canadian literatures in English and other literatures struggling with the legacy of the British Empire (Dorota Filipczak, Agata Handley); biblical intertexts in literature and culture, feminist philosophy, contemporary novels in English (Dorota Filipczak, Małgorzata Hołda); philosophy and hermeneutics (Małgorzata Hołda); contemporary poetry and fiction in English, especially in Canada, ekphrasis in intermedial contexts (Agata Handley); connections between literature in English and films, Gothicism (Tomasz Fisiak). The emphasis on diversity present in the name of the department is also reflected in the focus on intermedial relations between images, films, music and texts. The project entitled “Word, Sound and Image: Intertextuality in Music Videos” submitted by Head of department to National Science Centre has just won the relevant funds within Opus 17 competition. Agata Handley and Tomasz Fisiak are members of the project team. The department runs a scholarly journal entitled Text Matters: A Journal of Literature, Theory and Culture (indexed by Scopus).
