Professor DĄBROWSKA’s area of interest is Contemporary and Recent Latin American
Narrative. In 2013 she received a Doctoral Fellowship from the Mexican Government Merit
Awards (University of Veracruz Xalapa, Mexico). In 2016 Dr Dabrowska held a
Postdoctoral Research post in the University of Salamanca for the project “Identity and
Extraterritoriality. Bridges to and from Europe in the New Latin American Narrative”. She
is the author of several articles and book chapters on Mexican Literary Studies and Polish
Mexican Literary Relations.
The talk aims to examine the perception and representation of a place in the artistic and critical
discourse that emerges in the globalization era. The talk considers the shift from de-territorialized,
denationalized writings towards the concrete, the closeness of private or familiar places. The
principal focus is on this phenomenon, taking as its main idea the concept of the place as a source
of meaning, its mutations and interaction with global transformations. It reviews the imaginaries
and strategies that the recent localized narrative adapts, facing the challenges of globalization. Its
purpose is to understand the complex relationship between place, identity, and the constitution of
the postmodern subject, and to examine the role of literature in Spanish at that crossroads.
