About

My Name is Wiktoria Adamczyk. I am 26 years old. I come from Poland. In 2015 I received my B.A. in Jewish Studies from the Jagiellonian University in Kraków. Jewish life in Poland, Hebrew and Yiddish were my major fields of research at that time. I have always been interested in language, culture, history, philosophy, art and political science, German literature and culture. In Fall 2019 I earned my M.A. in Holocaust Studies at Haifa University in Israel, and this experience afforded me the opportunity to explore Israel, as a complex place, full of diversity. I am interested in linguistics, translation studies, Oolish-German translations,the role of translator, the function of language in our society, Nazi propaganda and their linguistic violence, comparative literature, cognitive poethics and philosophy.
