The House of Literature in Trondheim is delighted to host online poetry reading with an award-winning Polish poet, author and scholar, Julia Fiedorczuk.
On May 13th Fiedorczuk will read her poems in Polish and English and talk about ecopoetics. She will be joined by Hanna Musiol and Gulabuddin Sukhanwar.
Julia Fiedorczuk is a writer, poet, translator, researcher, and practitioner of ecocriticism, emphasizing the world-making power of literature. The significant issue in her works is the relationship between human beings and their planetary environment. She is affiliated with the Institute of English Studies at Warsaw University.
Julia Fiedorczuk released short stories collections: “Poranek Marii” (“Maria’s Morning”), “Bliskie kraje” (“Close countries”), novels: “Biała Ofelia” (“White Ophelia”), “Nieważkość” (“Weightlessness”; nominated for the Nike Literary Award) and “Pod Słońcem” (“Under the Sun”) as well as six poetry volumes. The latest of those, “Psalmy” (“Psalms”) was awarded the Wisława Szymborska Prize, Poland’s most prestigious prize for Poetry. She publishes essays as well, including “Cyborg w ogrodzie. Wprowadzenie do ekokrytyki” (Cyborg in the garden. Introduction to ecocriticism) and “Ecopoetics” (in collaboration with the Mexican poet Gerardo Beltrán).
Julia Fiedorczuk created the program of the School of Ecopoetics at Warsaw’s Institute of Reportage. Julia Fiedorczuk publishes widely in popular media, including “Zadra”, “Literatura na świecie”, “Dwutygodnik”, “Tygodnik Powszechny”, “Pismo”, „Przekrój” and monthly magazine “Znak”.
