Text-Image-Music: Crossing the Borders

Intermedial Conversations on the Poetics of Verbal, Visual and Musical Texts In Honour of Prof. Elżbieta Chrzanowska-Kluczewska

©2021 Edited Collection 540 Pages


Text-Image-Music: Crossing the Borders brings together a diverse body of scholars in a genuinely interdisciplinary and wide-ranging volume. This deliberate bricolage finds its unifying force in the erudition of contributing authors and their shared appreciation for the work and investigations of Professor Elżbieta Chrzanowska-Kluczewska, to whom this collection is dedicated. Tackling topics spanning narrativity, various modes of literary expressions, intersemiotic translation and multimodal communication, the volume contributes to interdisciplinary scholarship in the humanities.

This collection of articles results from the International Association of Literary Semantics Symposium that was held in Kraków in October 2018. The meeting of international scholars was the work of the Organizing Team who themselves were motivated, inspired and supervised by prof. Elżbieta Chrzanowska-Kluczewska. We, the editors of the volume and all the contributors, wish to dedicate this book to her – a brilliant scholar, an experienced teacher, a trusted colleague and a true friend. With this volume we would like to pay tribute to Elżbieta’s long-standing presence on the Polish academic scene, as well as the international stage and, on a more personal note, acknowledge her invaluable help in both professional and private matters. Dedicating this monograph to Elżbieta is meaningful on at least two levels. Firstly, the contributions all relate to her academic interests, and secondly, the papers collected for this book were all presented at a conference of IALS, of which Elżbieta has been a member for many years. So far Elżbieta has been actively involved in the organization of two IALS conferences (in 2006 and 2018) and it seems more than justified to honour her multifarious activities with these scholarly works.

Elżbieta has been affiliated with the Jagiellonian University for her entire academic life. She graduated from the Institute of English Studies in English linguistics in 1978 and received her Ph.D. degree in 1990. In 2005 Elżbieta obtained her post-doctoral degree, becoming an Associate Professor in 2009 and a Full Professor in 2016. She has been a teacher in the Institute of English Studies since 1981, and the range courses she has taught is impressive in itself. Aside from practical English courses, she has also conducted electives and seminars whose subjects reflect her research interests, ranging from semantics, to semiotics, stylistics, discourse and text studies and narratology. To date, she has successfully guided and supported three Ph.D. students and more than 90 M.A. students in achieving their academic goals.

Elżbieta has always been involved in the administrative aspects of the Institute. In the past she has been Vice-Head of the Institute of English Studies (2005–2008) and also its Head (2009–2012). She also served another term as the Head of the Institute (2016–2020). In addition to these positions Elżbieta has managed two departments within the Institute: the Department of Linguistic Pragmatics and Theory of Translation and Interpreting (2007–2008) and the Department of Applied Linguistics and EFL Teaching (2013–2015).

Elżbieta’s contribution to academia is outstanding. She is already the author of over 80 scholarly publications, amongst which are two monographs, Language-Games: Pro and Against (Universitas, 2004) and Much More than Metaphor: Master Tropes of Artistic Language and Imagination (Peter Lang, 2013). Elżbieta has co-edited three monographic volumes, namely In Search of (Non)Sense (with G. Szpila, CSP, 2009), The Contextuality of Language and Culture (with A. Gołda-Derejczyk, WSEH ←11 | 12→Press, 2009), and Language-Literature-the Arts: A Cognitive-Semiotic Interface (with O. Vorobyova, Peter Lang, 2017). Moreover, she is a co-editor of the book series Text-Meaning-Context: Cracow Studies in English Language, Literature and Culture published by Peter Lang (with. W. Witalisz). Elżbieta has participated in over 70 international and national conferences over the last 40 years. She has also been invited by many Polish and foreign academic institutions to deliver plenary speeches and lectures. Since 1999 she has developed and maintained particularly close relationships with an extensive network of Ukrainian linguists working in the field of cognitive poetics.

She has served as a reviewer for numerous journals, sitting on the Editorial and Scientific Boards of Polish and international journals, such as Polonica, Półrocznik Językoznawczy Tertium, Journal of Literary Semantics, Ukraine-based Cognition, Communication, Discourse and Armenian Folia Anglistika. Elżbieta has written over 70 articles and several article reviews for both local and international scholarly journals. Last, but by no means least, Elżbieta has translated extensively from Polish to English for the National Museum in Kraków.

Elżbieta remains an active member of a number of Polish and international associations, amongst others, the Polish Association for the Study of English, the Polish Linguistic Society, the Neophilological Committee of the Polish Academy of Arts and Sciences, the Modern Language Association of America, the International Association for Semiotic Studies and perhaps most importantly the International Association of Literary Semantics, an organization particularly dear to her heart, and of which she has been a board member since 2006.

Additionally, Elżbieta has won both national and university awards for her research and administrative work: seven awards granted by the Rector of the Jagiellonian University, as well as the Silver Cross of Merit from the President of the Polish Republic (2007), the Gold Medal for Long Service (2009), the Medal of the Commission of National Education (2012), and a medal from Kraków Polytechnic (2004) for her interdisciplinary activities in the domain of language and the arts.

Elżbieta has many non-linguistic interests. For as long as we have all known her, she has, together with her husband Kazimierz, climbed or trekked in the highest mountains in Europe and Asia, as well as enjoyed skiing in the Dolomites and the Alps. She is both enthusiastic and knowledgeable with regard to the arts, a fact which manifests itself when she translates Polish texts on the history of art into English.
