The ExRe(y) project encompasses biannual conferences and publications that are to meant to x-ray key developments in contemporary North-American literature and visual culture.

The inaugural ExRe(y) conference took place on April 7-8, 2016 at the Faculty of Humanities at Maria Curie-Sklodowska University in Lublin. It was organized by MCSU Department of American Literature and Culture in cooperation with Canadian Studies Department and Video Games Center. The topic of the conference, “Spaces of Expression and Repression in Post-Millennial North-American Literature and Visual Culture,” generated so much interest that we had participants coming from many countries, including Germany, Great Britain, Lithuania, Turkey, Belarus, Czechia, Slovakia, and Ukraine, as well as from several academic institutions in Poland.

The collection of essays inspired by the conference’s theme was published by Peter Lang in 2017.

ExRe(y) 2018 titled “Exhaustion and Regeneration in Post-Millennial North American Literature and Visual Culture” took place on May 10-11, 2018 in Lublin, Poland. The review of the conference is now available at U.S. Studies Online (clik here to read the review).

We invite all those who presented at ExRe(y) 2018 to submit their articles for publication. The volume of essays will be published by Peter Lang in mid-2019 in the series “New Americanists in Poland,” edited by Dr. Tomasz Basiuk.
