Title

Gender and war: Literary outlooks on women implicated in the Greek Revolution

Date

5 February 2021

Abstract

"The paper offers a gender perspective on philhellenic Polish literature regarding the Greek Revolution as produced by the Polish poet Józef Dunin-Borkowski. It focuses on selected examples of female characters diversely involved in these armed conflicts: legendary women warriors, war victims and other characters whose existence was marked by the war experience. Posing questions regarding representations of women’s agency on the one hand and their victimisation on the other, the paper approaches the political meanings of these female portraits in liberal and conservative national discourses. Although nationalisms usually tend to reinforce normative gender, the paper focuses on literary works that may question, challenge or transgress the existing models."
