Seventy-Nine Years of Degree Work on
American Studies in Poland, 1931-2009
The future has never been brighter for degree work in American Studies in Poland
since that long-ago day in 1931 when the first MA thesis was accepted. Seventy-nine years
later, we can celebrate over 350 times that number per year. In sum, there are a few
cornerstone words which now describe American Studies in Poland: creative, innovative,
progressive, dynamic, and mature. To abuse an old cigarette slogan, “You’ve come a long
ways, baby!”
Before we delve into the backstory of American Studies, let’s refresh on the state
universities and private colleges/universities in Poland as of 2009 which have English
Studies institutes:

The reader will recall the above TABLE, which appears early in “Preface to English
Studies.” Remember, the years of operation apply only to institutes of Filologii Angielskiej
(also known as English Institutes), not the years of existence of the university. For example,
Uniwersytet Jagielloński in Kraków began its existence in 1364 and added its English
Institute in 1908 (or 544 years later).
The story of English Studies in Poland has been a history of high drama, heartbreaking tragedy, labyrinth twists and turns under a variety of governments both foreign and
domestic, and the victim of such infernal forces that one can only wonder how it survived
during the dark times of the Partitions (until 1919), two world wars, nearly six years of Nazi
occupation, and Stalinist purges. After three narrow escapes from the lip of the grave,
English Studies resuscitated itself in the early 1950s to grow and prosper to such a degree
that English (in the 1990s) became the most popular foreign language taught in Poland at all
levels, from kindergarten through university.
Uniwersytet Jagielloński in Kraków (Cracow), the oldest university in Poland, was
the first to establish a chair in English philology in 1908, and began offering courses in 1909;
it awarded its first degree, a doctorate, in 1909, and a second in 1914. With the outbreak of
World War I, development came to a standstill. That accounts for the first decade. See

After the conclusion of the First World War additional departments were established
at Poznań (1921), Warsaw (1922) and Lwów (1924) (Kujawińska-Courtney, 165). In the
early 1920s Katolicki Uniwersytet Lubelski (Catholic University of Lublin) formed an
English section, which became a department in 1946. Departments of English during the
interwar period were quite small: “roughly 30 [students] per department, which made about
120 for the whole of Poland” (Fisiak, 17). The curriculum focused on British literature.
Documentation on only sixty-two MA theses (perhaps 50% of the true total) and eighteen
doctorates survived World War Two.
The Department of English at Lwów’s Uniwersytet im. Jana Kazimierza never
developed beyond giving an occasional seminar on British writers. There are no extant
records indicating that a master’s thesis was ever written. However, four rozprawy
doktorskie on British authors were composed between the world wars. After 1944 Lwów
became part of Ukraine, thus can no longer be counted as a Polish city or university.
Despite being operational, the English philology departments managed to produce a
meager three MA theses and two doctoral dissertations in British Studies during the 1920s;
during the 1930s the pace finally picked up with fifty MAs and thirteen doctorates. Let’s
look at TABLES 14 and 15.

British literature and arts dominated the study of English philology (language and
literature) in the second interwar decade. Of the sixty MA theses still extant (perhaps fifty
percent of the total), the philology fields are thus:

Of the extant MA theses and doctoral dissertations pre-1939, only 3.5 percent
focused on American Studies, with the very first thesis a comparative analysis of John Keats
and Amy Lowell in 1931 CE. That year will be our start date for the field or area discipline
of American Studies. However, it must be noted that
the academic “movement” called American Studies is said to have started with Henry Nash
Smith’s Ph.D. at Harvard University in 1940 and published in 1950 under the title Virgin
Land: The American West as Symbol and Myth (Lawrence Buell, “Commentary” to Henry
Nash Smith’s “Can American Develop a Method?”; reprinted in Lucy Maddox, ed. Locating
American Studies: The Evolution of a Discipline. Baltimore: Johns Hopkins Univ. Press.,
1999 [13]). Since “American Civilization” is considered a part of, or a synonym of American
Studies by some intellectuals, the American Studies as a field started with Daniel Aaron’s
Ph.D. dissertation at Harvard in 1937. (Daniel Aaron, The Americanist. Ann Arbor:
University of Michigan Press, 2007). At least he is considered by some eggheads as one of
the masters of American Studies (Lyra, 2013).
The following year (1932) saw an analysis of Herman Melville. Just before the
invasion of Poland by Nazi Germany (in September of 1939), a third and final MA thesis
was written on general literature. And that was that for American Studies degree work until
1949 with four MAs. We can thus say that American Studies was on a lifeline for the first
two decades of its infancy, producing a grand total of seven master’s theses and one
doctorate in its first 20 years. Of course we must recognize that American Studies’ nascent
phase was made extra long by the war. In Poland a long and abiding interest in America due
to Polish immigration and intense interest in the American constitution finally accelerated
the program in the late 1950s once the Stalinist years were fading in the rearview mirror.
9
Of the sixteen doctoral titles recovered through 1939, all were on British literature.
While small numbers can be misleading, these agree completely with the trends evident
during and immediately after World War Two: that is, British Studies commanded 81%
(1940-49) of all academic degrees awarded vs. 87% (1920-39).
During the Second World War both Jagiellonian and Warsaw Universities maintained
English philology programs in an underground university, and Poznań managed to complete
three MAs during the Nazi occupation. Antoni Prejbisz completed his doctorate at Warsaw
University in 1942.

The observer can readily grasp how prevalent British literature, arts, and culture
dominated that tragic decade. Commonwealth literature, arts, and culture/civilization will
not make an appearance for another forty years.
All Polish universities were closed in 1939 after the German invasion and
occupation. The Second World War and the Nazi extermination policy (of Jews, gypsies, the
physically and mentally handicapped as well as homosexuals) inflicted heavy losses upon
both the country and its universities. Many university buildings and some libraries were
totally destroyed. Warsaw was perhaps the worst case, with the loss of its entire teaching
staff, all buildings destroyed, and most of its library gone. Perhaps the cruelest hoax of all
occurred when the Nazis “opened” Jagiellonian University in Kraków on 5 November 1939:
“all 167 professors and lecturers. . .were seized by the Gestapo and sent to Sachsenhausen
concentration camp, north of Berlin” (Gilbert, 26). Those few who survived the camps often
died within ten years because of damaged health.
When World War Two ended, Lwów was in Soviet hands, with its pre-war faculty
scattered throughout Poland by 1945. Despite overwhelming problems, English departments
at Warsaw, Kraków, Poznań, Łódź, Wrocław, and Toruń opened in 1945. In 1946 Katolicki
Uniwersytet Lubelski (KUL) in Lublin created its English department. Given the quality of
student preparation, the standard of instruction, and the strained state resources, the Ministry
of Education suspended admission to all English departments in 1949 at all state universities
except Warsaw and the private Catholic University in Lublin. With the completion of the
MA theses in 1952, five English departments closed their doors. The quality of the essays
during this period was often deplorable. There was no language requirement for admission,
and thus many students started their studies without prior knowledge of English. In the rush
to complete degrees, anemic senior seminar papers of 22-27 pages were accepted in lieu of
respectable theses of 50-75 pages. These truncated papers are included in the bibliography
for the historical record rather than any inherent merit.

TABLE 17 reveals that British Studies held its own during the 1950s, the last time it will
show such strength.
In 1957 the English Institute at Łódź was reopened in a new political atmosphere. In
1958 Jagiellonian University at Kraków came back on line. A competitive entrance
examination and a rigidly disciplined program became the norm for the country. The course
of study was extended to five years, and the quality of MA theses increased significantly. In
1965 Wrocław University and Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań reopened their
English institutes. Thus by 1965 all the former English institutes were restored with the
exception of Toruń’s. In 1963, under pressure from the communist regime, Catholic
University in Lublin closed down its English department for twenty years. Down the road,
the state university, named after Marie Curie-Skłodowska, established an English institute in
1963. In 1973 the University of Silesia in Katowice and the University of Gdańsk opened
institutes. The School of Higher Education at Bydgoszcz formed an English department in
1975 and closed it down in 1988. In 1978 the School of Education in Opole opened an
English Department. And in 1987, when most of the professors and staff left Bydgoszcz for
Toruń, the last of the early departments was reopened for students.
The “recovery” of the 1950s is strongly linked to the significant political process
referred to as the “Gomułka thaw” (1956-1970). It was then (that is, in the late 1950s) the
regime agreed to the introduction of the Fulbright program in Poland, the first country in the
Soviet bloc backwoods, including the Soviet Union. (Dr Franciszek Lyra, my editor, was
Poland’s first Fulbright student to America; he earned his Ph.D. at Indiana University).
Each decade offers surprises, both pleasant and painful, as American Studies
struggles from last place in the 1930s to first place by 2000 CE. What authors attracted
students in each decade? In the 1940s American Studies had a miniscule four MA theses and
one doctorate on seven different literary figures, so we cannot say any one was a favorite
with student writers. In the next decade, 1950-59, things become clearer:

Ten/Eleven/Twelve/Thirteen TABLEs.)
During the first postwar decade the MA theses varied greatly in quality and length.
After 1950 both students and professors were obviously demoralized, and the essays became
proverbial trash: runty things of 22-29 pages filled on each page with dozens of misspellings,
grammatical blunders, and stylistic slips. The level of analysis was equally wretched
(simplistic plot summaries, sophomoric recounts of basic biographical facts, and such ilk).
Many of the 1952 theses were second drafts of seminar papers submitted in 1950 or 1951. In
short, it was a pell-mell rush to polish off the class and push them out the door before it was
locked. Perhaps the worst offender was Jagiellonian University of Kraków; however, after its
English Institute reopened in 1957, within six years its MA theses became among the best
and brightest in Poland. As Professor Lipoński so trenchantly points out, 1946-55 was the
Stalinist decade when the United States was the point enemy and the bulwark of the North
Atlantic Treaty Organization, the opponent to the Warsaw Pact. While British literature and
culture may have been less hazardous for the student and professor, it was nonetheless
suspect.
Specialists of English studies were intended to. . .be especially aware of dangers
resulting from any contact with ‘rotten Anglo-Saxon civilisation.’ This is why they
were subjugated to special efforts to immunising them. The literature to be read was
limited to those unquestionable masterpieces which were characterised by criticism
of those aspects of English and American society which were, in turn, considered to
be oppressive to common people or hostile to the communist system. Thus the study
of all writers originating among the common people was encouraged, especially
when they were in opposition to the ruling, feudal or capitalist systems. Charles
Dickens, for instance, was allowed as a defender of the poor and a good illustrator of
early capitalist wickedness, while Walter Scott was recommended as a fighter against
oppression. On the American side Jack London was an agent for American socialism
and Howard Fast (before he disapproved of and condemned communism) was
glorified as a symbol of oncoming and unavoidable changes in American thinking.
(11)
I compiled a bibliography entitled Jack London in Poland, 1909-94 (Carter), and the
numbers fully support Lipoński’s evaluation: 87% of the 8.3 million copies of London’s
works were printed between 1947 and 1989. The minute communism bit the dust in Poland,
so did Jack London. Howard Fast had three MA theses on him in the early 1950s then fell off
12
the literary map! The two theses on Karl Marx and one on Frederick Engels were written in
1952. And that was the end of that!
As Lipoński correctly observes, those who boldly ventured into Americana often took
the politically correct low road. While keeping their distance from work written for political
expedience, Americanist professors advised and promoted many an MA thesis with such
provocative titles as these gems:
Jack London’s Fight against Capitalism
Social Problems Reflected in Sinclair Lewis’ Novels
Criticism of Existing Conditions in Upton Sinclair’s Novels
American Problems in the Works of Theodore Dreiser
Frank Norris and His Fight against Capitalism
Social Criticism in Mark Twain’s Last Works
John Greenleaf Whittier as the Poet of the Abolitionists
Henry George and Edward Bellamy, Two Anti-Capitalist American Writers
The rabid anti-capitalist tone can be found in only 21% of the British essays vs. a
more strident 37% of the American theses. Since British Studies was somewhat "safer," we
find fewer politically-expedient titles. Furthermore, we must not discount a two-century
tradition of respect and enthusiasm for British literature and life whereas nothing comparable
existed for American culture. True, Polish emigrants by the millions fled to the USA for
economic and political reasons, but reverence for American "high culture" does not appear to
have been on anyone’s short list of compelling incentives to leave Poland for distant climes
5,000 miles away. The Polish intelligentsia certainly did not strive for an American accent
when learning English. Until the 1990s the preferred dialect Polish students tried to acquire
was BBC’s plumy tones, not ABS (American Broadcast Standard). However, some students
worked hard to acquire an American accent. In 1984 I taught Native-American literature at
the American Studies Center in Warsaw. Around thirty students crammed twice a week in a
classroom built for fifteen. At term’s end, only twelve students submitted papers and took the
exam. A bit stunned by the horrific disappearance rate, I asked the assistant director,
Dr Andrzej Dakowski, what happened. He said with a chuckle, “Didn’t you know that most
took your class just to listen to an American broadcast standard speaker. You know, like Jane
Pauley’s and Tom Brokow’s accent.” That was a bad hair day for me.
While only one professor wrote a politically proper dissertation during the first ten
years of communist rule, many advised or promoted master’s theses in this vein. The strident
tone ameliorates by the late 1950s and almost disappears by the early 1960s. During the
politically-charged years leading up to Solidarity and martial law in the early 1980s, this
vehement timbre does not reappear, much to the credit of both students and professors.
We must recall that in the Stalinist era a glass of Coca-Cola reportedly destroyed
one’s brain whereas a double shot of vodka had splendid medicinal properties. Having spent
nearly 120 months intermittently in Poland since January of 1984, I have become an enemy
of Coke and an ardent admirer of vodka, especially a bracing triple shot of Belvedere before
breakfast (just kidding).
Utilizing artistic works for propaganda expedience was emphasized both by the Axis
Powers and the Allies during World War Two. In defense of Polish students, we may say
that the Iron Curtain was a cold fact of life during the Cold War, war waged on economic
and political fronts rather than on traditional military battlefields.
The small numbers in TABLE 6 often prove nothing other than provide us with a few
points of interest: for example, all the writers are men with six of the ten already two metres
under the sod. Nary a woman had two theses written about her. Scanning the Top Ten writers
13
of 1950-59, we note that 20th-century writers dominate seven of ten spots. This trend will
continue through all decades; we see fiction over poetry, although drama makes a strong
showing when students begin looking at Arthur Miller, Eugene O’Neill, and Tennessee
Williams in the next decade.
When the politically-expedient MA theses are factored in for the Top Ten writers, we
see that they match perfectly the overall average for all American writers for the decade
(37% vs. 37%). Thus it can be said that, conversely, five theses in every eight were genuine
analyses of the aesthetic and historic merits of the authors’ works, a tribute to those students
who wrote the MA theses and those professors who supervised them.

In the 1960s Linguistics/Applied Linguistics emerged from the long shadow of
British Studies and left behind its primary role of fifty years as the “handmaiden” of
literature. Henceforth Linguistics will focus more strongly on what we now consider its
proper concerns: phonetics and phonology, morphology and syntax, semantics and stylistics,
text linguistics and discourse analyses, pragmatics and psycholinguistics, sociolinguistics
and linguistic theory, historical linguistics and dialectology, spelling and punctuation as well
as the usual Applied Linguistic fields of translation studies, lexical and lexicography
analyses, terminology studies, comparative historical studies, comparative/contrastive
grammar investigations besides error analyses, and linguistic approaches to literary texts.
American Studies has jumped from an anemic thirteen percent (13%) in the 1950s to
nearly twenty-nine percent (29%) in the 1960s, emerging at last from the lengthy shadow of
British Studies. It has taken American Studies nearly forty years to claim its place in the
academic sun. It will stride forth with adolescent vigor into the 1970s, well aware of its
innovative approaches to literature and language, culture and civilization.
As we see in TABLE 19 American Studies came of age in the second postwar decade
by grabbing a healthy 29 percent “market share,” despite the Cold War and sustained Polish
government hostility to the United States and NATO.

TABLE 20 provides an unexpected fact: the main surprise of the second postwar
decade is how well 19th-century authors do (four of ten) and how strong a showing the new
faces in drama make. Never before and never again will dramatists make their presence felt
so emphatically. But we must recall that Poland has a long history of theater and a very
lively artistic community. In 1997 Warsaw boasted twenty-three repertoire theaters, three
children’s puppet theaters, an English theater (The Mermaid), and a national ballet, opera,
symphony, and chamber groups―all in a city of 1.8 million people. The reader would expect
more of the lively arts in a national capital, but nonetheless the rule holds true: the average
Polish high school student has seen more dramatic productions than the average American
college student. Therefore, given their exposure to drama, Poles do not shrink from
explications of foreign dramatists like Eugene O’Neill, Arthur Miller, Tennessee Williams,
Samuel Beckett, and William Shakespeare.
Another relevant factor is the difficulty of the literary text: novels are often too long,
poetry is too complex and embedded with obscure, culturally-specific items, but a drama is
about the right length (25-40 pages) and right level of language since modern dialogue
makes fewer demands on the struggling student (I want to thank Professor Albert Wertheim
of Indiana University-Bloomington for this insight).

Cultural/Civilization Studies (that is, with a non-literary, non-linguistic focus) began
as early as 1978 “as a distinctive discipline within various English Departments”
(Kujawińska-Courtney: 174). By the 1990s almost all English Studies programs in Poland
stress the cultural (civilization) aspect in their curricula. Some universities have
founded interdisciplinary institutions, often operating outside the English Studies
units, to conduct research on British and American cultures drawing categories,
techniques, and interpretative models from cultural anthropology, semiotics,
sociology, political studies, literary studies, and linguistics (Kujawińska-Courtney:
174).
True, before 1980 there had been a slight trickle, an occasional MA thesis or doctoral
dissertation on religion and art, but the flood gates opened in the early 1980s to film and
music MAs. American Studies attracted more cultural/civilization degree work than British
Studies because of its worldwide dominance of Hollywood films, jazz and rock-‘n’-roll.
15
Turning to the third postwar decade, 1970-79, we see a sharp expansion in the
number of theses written (over triple the previous decade) and some fresh faces among the
most popular authors:

The three most popular authors (Faulkner, Hemingway, and Fitzgerald) assume the
dominant positions they will hold for several decades. Eliot begins to make a strong move to
the inside as the top poet and O’Neill as the top dramatist. In this decade we do not see a
woman among the top ten, despite that fact that approximately eighty-five percent of the
students working on MA degrees in English are women.
I must note in passing a phenomenon quite puzzling to an outsider from America: the
sustained interest of Polish professors and students in realistic novelists of the interwar
period, especially Fitzgerald, Hemingway, and Faulkner whereas the realists/naturalists at
the turn of the century (Theodore Dreiser, Frank Norris, Stephen Crane and Jack London) are
largely ignored with the exception of Mark Twain, who is just too important to ignore and so
much fun to read. But then we must remember that those professors who taught in the 1960s
and 1970s were reading the “hottest” American writers of the early postwar period as
students; they handed on their enthusiasm to the next generation of students and the
momentum built.

A curious thing happened on the way to the Roman forum: the conspirators sharpened their
knives and assassinated Julius Caesar. In the Polish forum, the civilization mandate was
expanded to “scientific cultural” topics for degree work: that is, to non-artistic areas such as
business and economics, business ethics, education, foreign policy, history, politics and
social issues. Again, American Studies led the way for two reasons: the opening in 1991 of
the North American Studies Center at the Łódź University and the expansion of the
American Studies Center at Warsaw University. The latter Center was established in 1977
and had offered courses for years. (I first taught there in the spring of 1984). The courses
were used by students for their degrees which were awarded by the English Institute. But by
1991 the Center had its own stand-alone degrees. At both centers the focus was on either
artistic culture (especially literature, film, music, and media studies) or scientific culture
(usually business, history, and politics). The third development was gender studies,
feminism, and sexuality. It’s not that Poles didn’t know all about the birds and the bees
before 1990; after all, they had one of the highest birthrates in all of Europe for several
decades after World War Two. They just didn’t openly talk about sexuality or write MA
theses on the topic during the communist era.
As we shall see in the sixth decade of this study, a new generation of professors is
bringing a new age group of writers into the evolving American canon: Jewish-American,
African-American, and female authors in abundance. (They call themselves the “PO-MO
babies”: the postmodern generation.) Perhaps the old maxim to true after all―we are both
victims of our age and products of our Age.
We might expect to see a higher portion of women authors in both the American and
British canons, given the fact that females comprise 85% of the MAs, 52% of the doctorates
and 44% of the doktoraty habilitacyjne degrees, and about 50% of the fulltime faculty.
However, Women’s Studies is still ten years in the future and the patriarchal tradition will
decline very slowly. It will be only in the fifth postwar decade (1990-99) that we will see a
phenomenal surge by Toni Morrison. The DWM (dead white male)-dominated canon―in
America, Britain, and Poland―is a fact of life, sad or otherwise, and will continue to be so
for some time.

In the 1990s we have only one female writer among the top twelve―the
incomparable Toni Morrison, an LBF (living black female). The Nobel Prize for literature in
1993 obviously helped attract students to her.

After the fall of communism in early 1989, student interest in British/Commonwealth
and American Studies rocketed through the roof. In 1991 the American Studies Center at
Warsaw University began formal degree programs. Łódź established its British and
Commonwealth Studies Centre as well as the North American Studies Center in 1991; the
latter changed its name to the American Studies and Media Center in 1999 and still later to
the Department of Transatlantic and Media Studies. At Warsaw in 1993 the English Institute
established its British Studies Centre.

After the turn of the century, it finally happened in American Studies after a mere
seventy-nine years: a female writer finally took first place in MA theses. Toni Morrison was
the only female writer in the top eleven in the 1990s; now she has attracted more attention
than any other American in the 2000s. Also, she is the first female to pass the 100 MA thesis
barrier, and is slowly gaining Hemingway. However, given the perennial interest in him,
Toni will probably never surpass him.
The decade just concluded also saw another first. We have two women in the top
twelve: Toni Morrison and Sylvia Plath. Please recall that about 85% of all MA students are
women, and now they have taken a far more lively interest in female writers as subjects for
their theses.
The word “feminism” or “feminist” certainly deserves a spot although feminism per
se really got rolling about 1995 in degree work. A 2009 thesis title stated quite emphatically
that we are in the post-feminist world.

The paradigm shift, from literature to language, will last through the fourth decade as
linguistics, applications of linguistics, and foreign language teaching continue to erode
British literature until Americana pulls even in the 1990s as British music and style, and
American films and fast foods take hold with a vengeance among teenagers and college
students. By 1990 McDonald’s, Kentucky Fried Chicken, Burger King, and Pizza Hut had
Warsaw franchises, and were springing up all over the countryside like mushrooms in the
forest after a rainstorm. In late 1989 the first “Sex Shop” opened in Warsaw (note the name
in English); fifteen years later almost every town over 20,000 people had at least one erotic
adult shop. With good reason many editorials in the leading newspapers in the 1990s ranted
about the vile, deplorable Americanization of Polish culture.

TABLES 29 and 30 reveal that British/Commonwealth Studies have often been more
conservative than American Studies when it comes to embracing artistic and scientific cultural
fields, especially in the last decade. No doubt the American Studies Center (Warsaw) with its
balanced emphasis on literature, business and politics and the Department of Transatlantic and
Media Studies (Łódź) with its marked emphasis on mass media and film skew the data against
literary studies.
The Development and Evolution of the American Canon
The early decades of the 20th-century produced just nine literary subjects through
1949: William Faulkner, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Ernest Hemingway, Sinclair Lewis, Amy
Lowell, Herman Melville, Carl Sandburg, Upton Sinclair and John Steinbeck. The 1950s
produced degree work on twenty-one new faces to the American canon. After nearly thirty
years, we have thirty authors analyzed.
Let’s skip over the 1960s, ‘70s, ‘80s and ‘90s when almost 340 new faces were
added. What has happened in the last ten years? The pace has quickened to such a degree my
head fairly swims with new names I first met in Poland. TABLE 31 gives the full list.

1.76 works per writer
Despite its length we can dispense with TABLE 31 rather quickly. We can better
visualize the scope of the evolving and expanding American Studies canon by seeing the
names of writers rather than learning that “374 new faces were added to the canon, 200009.” Oddities abound: in the 1930s, only dead authors are analyzed; in the 1940s all but one
were still alive in the decade; then dead poets and novelists dominate in the 1950s; finally
from 1960 through 2009, live authors dominate. Why were the 1950s such an anomaly? One
reason jumps immediately to mind: that decade was highly charged with three-eighths of all
MAs clearly taking the low road of politically-expedient topics. It was politically safer to
analyze authors long dead. Take politics out of the mix and replace it with a focus on
aesthetic and historical issues, and we have about 65% alive vs. 35% dead in all decades
except the 1930s where the numbers (only two authors) are much too small to indicate
anything.
Although between eighty and eighty-five percent of all graduates of English MA
programs are female, their theses focus almost dominantly on male authors from 1940
through 1979; in the 1980s we finally see the twenty percent feminine barrier breached.
Finally, after six decades in American Studies and eight decades in British/ Commonwealth
Studies, the female gender captures one-third of the MA theses. Feminism has belatedly yet
decisively arrived in Polish universities in the 1990s. At the current rate of increase, female
writers (vs. male) will probably capture at least fifty percent of all literary titles by 2020 CE,
or over ninety years after the start of American Studies in Poland.
In the good ole days (prior to 1995), student writers resorted to books, journals,
newspapers, dictionaries, and encyclopedias for information about their chosen author(s).
However, the Internet then became a force in scholarship. The average MA bibliography
began to contain several items gleaned off the computer. As a result four trends soon came to
the fore: [1] students were no longer confined to their institute and/or university library;
instead they could leisurely cruise the World Wide Web at home and compose a thesis with
fewer and fewer trips to the libraries; [2] with the scholarly/critical world at their fingertips,
they could examine in depth literary figures who had not yet appeared on the institute’s
library shelves. The personal computer world was their critical oyster. Gone were the days
when they were more or less confined to one or two well-known authors considered in the
senior seminar. (An extreme case: at Wrocław thirteen MA theses on John Galsworthy were
accepted in 1979 vs sixteen in the next six years, 1980-85.) Now they could examine
hundreds of “new faces” (374 in the 2000s), with few featured in a seminar. In Dr Franciszek
Lyra’s 2009 seminar one student chose the well-worn William Faulkner; the other ten
selected writers who had never attracted a single thesis in all of Poland. By 2009 every
college student either had her own computer or had easy access to a computer station in the
institute library. (In 2011 I never had to wait for a free station at the American Studies Center
or the English Institute of Warsaw University. A quick survey of students sitting on the steps
of the English Institute of Łódź University in 2011 says it all: nineteen had access to either a
laptop or a home desktop; only one used a computer in the Institute’s library.)
[3] The gargantuan increase in graduates from all programs (from 600 a year in 1989
to 1,800 in 2009) vs. a modest increase in faculty thesis supervisors (promotors) meant only
one thing―a noticeable decline in the quality of the average thesis. Or phrased another way,
far less top cream and a lot more skim milk. True, English Institutes still produce those 50
“top cream,” 50 or so “light cream” but 1,200 “skim milk.” The bottom 100-150 theses will
40
not bear up under even a quick glance. The faculty who accepted trash were faced with a
dilemma: “What can we do with a student we’ve nurtured for five years and now must toss
in the trash bin?” Out of Christian charity or a sense of guilt they gave the “acceptable”
grade and. . . .
Perhaps the best year for quality was 1988, the last full year of communist rule; the
best for quantity, 2009. I have come across two instances where a single promotor
supervised no less than thirty MA theses in a calendar year. At the same institute a professor
well known for requiring several drafts attracted on average only a couple of excellent
students a year. And the resulting theses were among the best in all of Poland.

The American canon, beginning in the 1980s, almost doubles every decade until it’s
five times larger in the 2000s (387 authors) vs. 1970s (46). Long gone are the days when the
library resources limited many students to the old “masters” like Edgar Allan Poe, Mark
Twain, Henry James, Ernest Hemingway, William Faulkner and F. Scott Fitzgerald. Now the
student searching for a fresh face can easily look at 200 writers on the computer before
narrowing her choice down to twenty and negotiating the final selection with her thesis
supervisor. In the pre-computer era the typical Polish student writing her MA thesis usually
had two options: [1] analyze three novels or plays by one author and [2] compare/contrast
novels or dramas by two or three different authors. An institute’s library shelves had only
space for fifty journals and critical books on perhaps 100 writers. Then the student gained
ready access to Internet research on personal computers in the 1990s. Boom! the critical
world turned. As a result of rather “slim critical pickings” on relatively unknown writers in
the 2000s, the student choosing the “fresh face” option usually composes a comparative/
contrastive thesis on two, three, or more literary figures:
Sherman Alexie (11 theses):
Rudolph Anaya (8):
Ana Castillo (7):
bell hooks (6);
Nella Larson (11):

Half are minorities, and six of ten are women―oh, how times they are a-changin’.
TABLE 33 (below) reveals that British/Commonwealth Studies had considerably more “oneoff” works, 1909-1989 than American Studies; however, the statistics for 1990-2009 are
nearly identical since all students had ready access to computers, and faculty in both areas
were equally flexible in approving fresh faces for analysis. This trend of numerous fresh
faces vs. fewer old mugs will probably continue.

Regardless of the popularity of new faces, we must acknowledge that many of the old
masters enjoyed their best decade in 2000-09: Ernest Hemingway (90 works); William
Faulkner (81), F. Scott Fitzgerald (61), Kurt Vonnegut (74), Tennessee Williams (55), Henry
James (102), Edgar Allan Poe (90), T. S. Eliot (54), etc. Toni Morrison (121) set a new
standard for works in one decade. So we must not get misty eyed about any possible decline
of attraction for old mugs; they still overwhelm the fresh faces in sheer numbers and will do
so for the foreseeable future.
In the first postwar decade (1950-59) the percent of new female authors was low by
any standard, given the fact that during the interwar period (1919-1939), over fourteen percent
of the MA theses which identify the author and exactly twenty percent of doctoral
dissertations feature women writers.

TABLE 35 (below) reveals that Caucasians comprised the first thirty-four authors
(1931-59); however, Jewish-American writers made their best showing in the 1960s. I cannot
even guess the impact the horrors of the Holocaust may have had on Polish students who
were born during World War Two. History tells us that Poland contained before the war a
significant minority of adults who were virulent anti-Semitic. Thus the reasons behind the
explorations of Jewish-American authors must remain an enigma wrapped in a mystery—at
least to a puzzled American.
African-American writers enjoyed their best decade in the 1980s while the other
minorities (Asian Americans, Hispanic Americans and Native Americans) finally came to
the attention of Polish students. This trend (minority writers) should maintain their grip on
twenty-percent of all theses and doctoral dissertations in the present decade.

In 1978 the area of permissible topics was significantly enlarged in both British/
Commonwealth Studies and American Studies to include subjects which relied upon the arts
and humanities: that is, art, film, media, music, religion and sports. It took a decade or so to
take off, but by the mid-1990s the area was booming along; in the 2000s a whopping 1,184
student works centered on these nonliterary cultural fields. It had come a long way from
“John Keats and Amy Lowell: Likenesses and differences in the literary activity of both
poets.” Kraków (1931) to “Postindustrial Black ghetto and its inhabitants mirrored in the
gangsta rap of Tupac Shakur.” Warsaw3 (2009).
Students went after music and film with a wicked vengeance. In the 1980s jazz and
rock’n’roll dominated; now hip-hop and gangsta-rap are the rippin’ rage. Of 129 different
film titles specifically named in titles, only Pulp Fiction and Star Wars gleaned five
academic works each. The grand winner was the Shrek series with thirteen. The most popular
film directors are Adam Adamson and Vicky Jensen of Shrek fame, followed by Woody
Allen and Quentin Tarantino. Film studies account for an astonishing 519 degrees.
From the core of media studies six branches have grown: advertising, mass media,
print journalism as well as photography, radio and television. Both the American Studies
Center in Warsaw and the Department of Transatlantic and Media Studies in Łódź have been
dominant forces behind the intensive interest in American media culture. After eliminating
cross-listed studies and analyses of British and Polish topics, we can add an additional 336
MAs and 13 doctorates on the linguistic aspects of mass media for a grand total of 898
works. Thus media studies is the leader by almost a full kilometer over any other area in
43
cultural fields. Given the cultural and linguistic approaches to media studies, its lethal lead
should only widen in the following decades.
Nine first ladies became subjects of MA theses as part of the growing feminist drive.
Forty-two percent of new authors are women, thus a wholesome increase from the modest
5% in the first three decades. I look forward to 2020 CE when at least half of all new authors
are of the feminine persuasion and patriarchal dominance is history―at least in English
studies in Poland. Many of these new faces are the subject of one comparative thesis which
they split with another new face. I must give a shout-out to the Polish faculty who are so
receptive to new works and new authors, and are so willing to explore cutting-edge literature
with their students.
Finally, a careful examination of literary theses reveal that there has been a noticeable
shift away from (high) serious literature to (low) popular fiction, especially in the pursuit of
gothic elements: that is, vampires and the undead, the subhuman and horror, gnomes and
dwarves, witches and wizards, and magical and supernatural.
TABLE 36 is our Twinkie or cupcake sugar shock. Katowice and Poznań were the
leaders in “gothic & vampire studies” through 1999; in the last decade Łódź and Warsaw
have the best (or most) neck-biters.

It took fifty years in American Studies to attract a modest fifty-two MA theses and a
doctoral habilitation on the macabre vs. seventy-four theses in the last ten years, an awesome
increase. In British Studies it took seventy years to generate sixty MA theses and one
doctoral dissertation; in the last ten years, eighty MAs and three doctorates. Among
American, British, and Polish teenagers we see the same startling increase in intense interest
in gothic/vampire films, novels and video games in the last decade. It appears that the same
vampires regularly fly the transatlantic route when not roosting in the British Isles, which
have also enjoyed the same neck-biting vogue. On my many trips to Łódź I didn’t notice an
unusual number of vampire bats in the belfry; maybe I should have stayed for a midnight
service. One must wonder what’s in the water at Łódź and Warsaw.

Minority voices in American Studies
In the early postwar decades, men dominated African-American literature. The “big
three” were James Baldwin, Ralph Ellison, and Richard Wright, all discovered by 1970.
Amiri Baraka, Martin Luther King, Malcolm X and Langston Hughes added weight to the
Black band of brothers. In the past forty years 215 degree works have been written on those
seven men. However, since the early 1990s their voices have be drowned out by a new “big
three” of Toni Morrison, Alice Walker, and Zora Neale Hurston, who have generated 239
MA theses in a mere twenty-five years. Nella Larsen, Angela Hansberry, and Harriet Jacobs
plus another twenty-five women edged them overall ahead of the men. The big three
African-American men aren’t exactly academically dead; they’re limping along with the big
three African-American women marching ahead, outperforming them three to one in this last
decade. Bravo, Toni, Alice, and Zora! Studies of African-American culture add another 171
degrees. In sum, their literature and culture combined account for over 700 MAs; thus almost
10% of all degrees in American Studies deal with African-American literature and culture,
history and music. What has always amazed me as an outlander is the obvious fact that very
few Polish students in American Studies have ever been to the U.S.A. or have met an
African American in Poland, yet the students remain fascinated by African-American literature and culture, especially music. Coincidentally, I’ve met three cognoscenti of American
jazz; they were born and raised in Poland. Young Poles seem to love hip-hop and gangstarap as much as American teenagers.
In Native-American literature N. Scott Momaday led the way for a few years, but by
the late 1990s Louise Erdrich and Leslie Marmon Silko became the dominant voices.
(Leslie’s father, Lee Marmon, and I are old friends; he gave my class a guided tour of the
Laguna reservation where Ceremony takes place.) Leslie and Louise now own the field
although Sherman Alexie had done well. Good show, Louise and Leslie! Collectively, the
twenty-two identifiable authors have been featured in a modest 178 MA theses. NativeAmerican culture added another 93 MAs and three doctorates, bringing their grand total to
over 253. I had expected more since Karl May’s Winnetou has sold more copies in Poland
than any foreign novel through 2009 CE. This German’s fantasy Western about Apache
heroes and US Army villains is well known to almost every Pole beyond nine years.
Teaching Native-American literature at the American Studies Center in 1984 and 1995, I
discovered that every student had read the novel at least once and seen the Winnetou films
twice over. Thus there is an enormous reservoir of love of and admiration for Native
Americans. Poles share the pan-European fascination with American Indians; they consider
the Indian the true bohater (hero) and the soldier the slimy scum on a stinking algae pond
with the greedy, land-hungry settler only a smidgeon better.
In Asian-American literature women have always ruled the roost, from the late 1980s
until today. Of the twenty-five identifiable authors, nearly three-fourths are women and they
account for 87% of all MA theses. Maxine Hong Kingston and Amy Tan simply overwhelm
all other Asian-American authors. The men can’t seem to win for losing. Asian-American
culture added a very modest eleven MAs.
Seventeen Hispanic-American authors are analyzed, of whom nearly 60% are
women, who also account for two-thirds of all MA theses. In this arena of ethnic literature,
the men can’t seem to win, etc. The most likely dominant voice in the current decade (201019) will be Sandra Cisneros. Hispanic-American culture tallied another forty-three theses for
a grand total of 104 degrees.
In the last fifty years Jewish-American literature and culture have long had major
voices: Saul Bellow, Allen Ginsburg, Bernard Malamud, Philip Roth, and Isaac Bashevis
Singer. Those five men account for 334 MA theses, one doctorate, and one habilitation.
45
There is not a single feminine voice to challenge these Jewish-American kings of the literary
road.
During the communist period, 1946-89, “sex” and “sexuality” were almost never
mentioned in degree-work titles. Homosexuals were deemed “social outcasts and misfits.” In
the 1990s four brave souls analyzed homosexuality; in the decade just concluded the pace
picked up to ten theses in ten years, with gay topics outnumbering lesbian by four to one.
Thus the queerest thing about Queer [lesbian-gay-bisexual-transgender] Studies in Poland is
how low-keyed and deep in the closet it stays. Nonetheless, the best title in American Studies
in the last ten years is this: “Coming out of the coffins”―queer vampires in contemporary
fiction,” written by a young lady from Lublin’s UMCS. Personally, I didn’t know that
vampires had any preference for blood type (mine is A+) or sexual orientation. We old
academics can still learn a few new things every week.
In 1992 women’s study centers opened at Warsaw’s and Łódź’s Institutes of English.
The focus has brought energy and direction to “gender studies.” When a computer key-word
search of “feminine” and “femininity,” “feminism” and “feminist” is made of the main
bibliography, we discover that students initially preferred the gender studies route with
explorations of women’s roles, discrimination against women, and the social status of
women. However, in the mid-1990s they made a hard left turn and wrote on feminism. The
more adventurous brought the terms “sex” and “sexual,” “sexuality” and “sexism” and
“sexist” into the academic arena in the 1990s. American Studies has produced 183 such MA
theses in the last thirty-five years.
When we add the term “gender” to the mix, the same pattern emerges: nine MA
theses through 1999, and 40 MAs and one doctorate since as well as the linguistic “genderlect” thrice. Together, the 225 theses and one doctoral dissertation constitute only 3.2 percent
of all theses in American Studies; however, given the strong showing in the last ten years, I
expect this trend to continue and even expand. But let’s not celebrate too soon. Some
students have already announced that we are now “post-gender” and “post-feminism.” What
now? I just can’t keep up with these kids! After elimination of cross-listed works and British
Studies analyses, we can add another 121 which use linguistic approaches to gender studies,
for a grand total of 426.
The major difference between the two major literary areas is the Americanists prefer
the gender studies approach and sexuality topics whereas the Anglicists are far more likely
to focus on a specific author like Virginia Woolf, Iris Murdoch, Helen Fielding, or Margaret
Atwood.

In the 1980s the arena of permissible topics was further enlarged in American Studies
to include fields which relied upon mathematics and the social sciences: namely, business
and economics, business ethics, education, foreign policy, history, politics and social issues.
In this bibliography, scientific culture often uses mathematics, the scientific method, and
evidence, proofs and logic. (By mathematics I mean technical forms employed in modern
science, not medieval numerology used by religion and astrology.) By the early 1990s
scientific approaches gained traction and in the 2000s an astonishing 1,387 students
employed this methodology. Of course, we must remember that the American Studies
Centers in Lódź and Warsaw had in their charters the exploration of American literature and
culture. By 2000 the majority of MA theses at these two centers largely ignored literature
and examined the entire scope of its culture. The Lódź University’s AS center narrowed its
scope somewhat to media studies and politics; the Warsaw University’s AS center started a
minor revolution by introducing first ladies and presidents to the mix, thus accentuation the
political aspects of American culture. So it was quite surprising to me that George Walker
Bush (2001-2009) outshone all other presidents by a large margin (50 theses vs. 36 on
Ronald Reagan). Abraham Lincoln, the most studied president in U.S. history, attracted only
nine Polish theses.
Turning to scientific cultural areas, we see that the dominant fields are
business/economics, history and politics. In the latter area, presidential elections have
dominated in the last ten years. Quite unexpectedly, first ladies have found favor. Their
sudden inclusion is a clear result of the feminist shift in American Studies.
Of our forty-four presidents through 2010, no less than twenty-one have been
featured in an MA thesis. Who would have bet that Jack Kennedy didn’t win the popularity
contest? Well, he came in third, just behind Ronald Reagan. The clear winner is George W.
Bush, our combat-avoiding politico who followed Bill Clinton, our most famous draft
dodger, who came in fourth in the straw poll. Lots of ink was spilled over the propaganda
techniques, outright lies, and hedges of the four, especially Bush Two. I wonder if Polish
troops in Afghanistan and Iraq contributed to the overall negative approach to “W”? Much to
my astonishment, nary a Polish student examined the tricks and turns of Dick Cheney, the
famous draft-dodging vice president. Three students at Warsaw’s American Studies Center
found time to look at Henry Kissinger, who visited the Center in person in 2000 and
obviously won a few fans.
In Warsaw I heard a delightful rumor: the American Studies Center, a bit weary of
the super-conservative stance of the American Tea Party, was fermenting an opposition
super-liberal Beer Party, with only two planks in its platform—a cooked goose on
everybody’s table and a barrel of beer in everyone’s garage. Make mine Tyskie.

Let us cast our keen eyes on TABLE 38, which give us the 100 top writers and artists
as well as the six hottest presidents in terms of student interest. Everything should be selfevident except for the last two columns on the right. Average works per year reveal how
many degrees per year were written on a writer between the first and last year of his or her
appearance in American Studies. I did the math merely to power rank artists with the same
number of degrees and to resolve ties. The last column shows us how hot an author is, if he
or she is a real mover or shaker: Toni Morrison is now the hottest American on two legs,
2000-09.
Ernest Hemingway, the most popular American writer with students, is still the most
popular American author with the general public in terms of overall book sales. For eighty
years Jack London was the most popular American author in Poland, but in the 1990s
London’s sales dropped like a rock in a still pond while Hemingway’s kept sailing smoothly
over troubled waters. Moreover, three of Ernest’s novels (For Whom the Bell Tolls, The Sun
also Rises and The Old Man and the Sea) were adapted for the Polish stage and had thirteen
different productions in six different cities, 1968-70, as well as radio plays based on the stage
productions.
The reader will notice that Jack London is ranked forty-ninth in degree work and will
never climb higher since only three novels are routinely published nowadays: Martin Eden,
White Fang and Call of the Wild. He won’t get a lot of academic traction with two dog
stories best read before high school.
T. S. Eliot is our most honored poet, with his Waste Land the most-analyzed poem in
the English language, at least in English Studies in Poland. No poet on the British side of the
literary aisle can challenge him.
The biggest flop in the last ten years is William Wharton, a hot writer in the 1990s
with seventeen MA theses, and only three in the last decade. Why the drastic decline? Your
guess is probably better than mine.

The Romantic Age, 1828-1865, still attracts some student interest because of
Nathaniel Hawthorne and Edgar Allan Poe, who provides fodder for murder and mystery, the
wonderful and weird (including incest), Gothic horror and terror. What bird in life can
compete with Poe’s literary squawking raven? Hawthorne presents us with the most scathing
exposé of Puritanical hypocrisy in literature.
The Realist/Naturalist Period, 1866-1914, gives a good account of itself, especially
Henry James and Mark Twain. The hardcore naturalists who explored the survival of the
fittest in Nature and society (Jack London, Stephen Crane, Frank Norris, and Theodore
Dreiser) do not find much favor in Poland.
Until quite recently, the major figures of the Modern Period, 1915-1940, dominated
the American canon: Ernest Hemingway, William Faulkner, F. Scott Fitzgerald, T. S. Eliot,
Eugene O’Neill and John Steinbeck, all with 100 or more theses. The “big six” found much
favor in English institutes for forty years; professors passed on their enthusiasm to their
students and the numbers rose. Even in the 21st century those six still command considerable
attention.
In the Contemporary Age, 1941-present, we see the “big seven,” all with 100 or more
theses: Toni Morrison, Tennessee Williams, Kurt Vonnegut, Saul Bellow, J. D. Salinger,
Sylvia Plath, and Arthur Miller. For the first time in the history of American Studies in
Poland we have two women (Morrison and Plath) among the leaders. Given the rapid
expansion of feminism in the last fifteen years, we can predict that Flannery O’Connor and
Carson McCullers will join that select group (100+ works) before 2020 CE.

Functions of English Studies in Poland, 1909-2009
This unique bibliography is the first and only comprehensive study of degree-work
in English Studies in Poland. As such, it documents the fashion of literary and linguistic
interest, and charts the rise and fall of literary figures and trends. The project will be the
chief finding source for Polish, American, and British/Commonwealth scholars interested in
the history, scope, popularity (or lack thereof) of a particular literary figure, group of writers,
or genre. The huge study will help scholars and critics understand how British/
Commonwealth and American cultures, linguistics, and literature have become an intrinsic
aspect of and robust influence on Polish culture and scholarship.
The primary functions of this work are four: (1) a national registry or historical
record of MA theses, doctoral dissertations and doctoral habilitations completed for an
academic degree in English Studies; (2) a witness to the impact of particular British and
American authors on the Polish academy; (3) a sourcebook of fresh ideas for students
looking for a specific writer, topic, or approach for their own work; and (4) a data base for
future analyses of specific authors and topics in English Studies.
Note to a Polish User of This Bibliography
To locate your American Studies work, enter your family name followed by a comma,
then your given name plus a colon: for example, Kolwak, Agnieszka: Or you can scroll
through the works listed under your chosen author (such as Twain, Mark) to locate the thesis
or dissertation. Some married ladies use their maiden names, others their “double-barreled”
married name: for example, Uszyńska-Zobel, Katarzyna. Only a few went with their new
married names.
American Studies uses the same system as its British/Commonwealth sister: each
MA thesis follows the identical entry style:
Family name, given name: Exact title. Place (year). Number of pages. (Supervisor’s/
promotor’s name). [Bibliographer’s comment in brackets]
Pięta, Marlena: The cult of freedom in the works of the Beat writers. Warsaw3 (2004). 100
pp. (T. Basiuk). [Allen Ginsberg, Jack Kerouac & Mark Twain]
Doctoral dissertations written for the Doctor of Humanities degree follow the same
plan and add the supervisor’s (promotor’s) name in parentheses and are identified by Dr Since
76
1990 some Polish scholars refer to their doctorate as the “Ph.D.” although the official degree
is still listed as a “Doctor of Humanities.”
Dr Bałazy, Teresa: Flannery O’Connor’s fiction. Poznań (1977). 251 pp. (Andrzej
Kopcewicz).
Some doctoral dissertations are written in Polish to increase accessibility; a translation of the
title [in brackets] will follow the supervisor’s name (in parentheses).
Dr Gruszewska-Wojtas, Ludmiła: Harmonia "zgrzytliwych światów." Analiza wizji rzeczywistości w poezji T. S. Eliota. Lublin (1992). 304 pp. (Artur Blaim). [The harmony of
"grating worlds": An analysis of the vision of reality in T. S. Eliot’s poetry]
Doctoral habilitation degrees are awarded for a postdoctoral published book. Like the
dissertation, the habilitation may have been written in Polish to reach a wider audience.
Identified by Dr hab., the habilitation’s original Polish title will be given after the writer’s
name; a translation into English [in brackets] of the title will be provided after the page
numbers.
Dr hab. Ceynowa, Andrzej: Sztuka czarnego teatru 1968-1982. Gdańsk (1993). 317 pp. [Art
of the Black theatre, 1968-1982]
Note to a Polish Writer Whose Work Is Not Listed
I apologize in advance to those students who earned degrees at English institutes,
American Studies centers, and private colleges/universities yet whose works are not listed in
this national bibliography. Despite herculean efforts by my editor (Dr Franciszek Lyra of
Warsaw University) and me, some librarians, archivists and humanities deans failed to
response to repeated requests for data concerning degree work. Two directors pled “privacy
protection” of student work. In one case it took three letters over nine months to the dean, a
phone call by a former minister of national education to the university rector as well as letters
to four different MA promotors to move the dean to release the names. Then one rainy day the
data showed up as a computer attachment without one word of explanation.
If your work is not listed, please send me the information by 2 October 2016 at
[email protected] I shall then verify the datum with your humanities dean (dziekanat) and
enter it by 30 December 2016. No one else can alter this bibliography.
