Byre World/CRSCEES: In Conversation with Monika Szydlowska

Description
Monika Szydlowska is an author of a popular webcomic 'Na Emigracji' that illustrates the experiences of Polish immigrants in the UK. The blog had been maintained since October 2013 and read by more than 10,000 fans. By using a style reminiscent of comic illustration it relates the trials and tribulations of immigrants who have decided to move to the British Isles. The minimalist watercolours are enriched with text (both in Polish and English), used to highlight or outline the nuances of common experiences and unexpected situations faced by a Pole outside Poland. The illustrations in 'Na Emigracji' are frequently comical - either through laying bare prevailing stereotypes (on both sides) or through making wry observations of cultural differences. Dr Emily Finer will join Monika Szydlowska for a discussion of her work that has been recently published as a book 'Do You Miss Your Country?' (2016).
