The Senses in Polish Culture
The Senses in Polish Culture. Representations of the Human Senses in Language, Literature, and Art from the Middle Ages to the Present.
The project is devoted to the issues of sensuality interpreted as a historically variable set of forms representing the human senses (e.g. sight, hearing, taste, touch, smell, the body). The research purpose of the project is to present sensuality in a wide cultural context – e.g. literature, language, art, philosophy, folk culture, history, theatre – and a variety of problems associated with each of the senses.
The subject of the project (to be extended in the future) is sensuality in Polish culture. So far, with more than 1000 articles published and accessible online, The Senses in Polish Culture is one of the biggest thematic encyclopaedia in the humanities. The system of hypertextual connections between articles provides the users with digital knowledge-discovery opportunities. The access is free after registration.
