MIRON B. AND US IN PARIS
On the 15th and 16th of November an international conference on Miron Białoszewski's Memoir from the Warsaw Uprising was held, celebrating the 50th anniversary of the book's publication. The organisers of the event were the Scientific Center of Polish Academy of Sciences in Paris and the Institute of Literary Research as represented by Piotr Sobolczyk; the French partner of the conference was the University of Lille as represented by Anna Synoradzka. All the papers were presented in French.
