My brand new book
With a PhD in humanities (literary, linguistics, culture and media studies), I am a media researcher, comics and picture book theorist, visual communication and visual literacy expert, narratologist and visual artist.
I specialize in media, popular culture and in visual culture in a broad sense (concept art and others).
I defended my doctoral dissertation entitled “Narrative strategies in comics. Between elite and popular culture” at the Department of Rhetoric and Media, University of Warsaw.
I participate in works of the Third Regions of Literature Studies Group affiliated with the Polish Academy of Sciences and of the Laboratory of Occasional and Applied Literature, University of Warsaw, where my subject matter is comics.
For years in various institutions I have been conducting thesis seminars and original courses, such as: the poetics of comics, visual workshops, artistic and applied narratives, writing on the Internet: theory and practice, workshops for columnists, journalism and press workshops as well as local and local media.
I am featured as an expert in the media, including Polish television: TVP Info, TVP Kultura, TVP Polonia, TVN 24 BiS, Telewizja Republika, radio: Tok FM, Czwórka Polskie Radio, Trójka - Program Trzeci Polskiego Radia, Program 1 Polskiego Radia, Program 2 Polskiego Radia, Polskie Radio 24, Polskie Radio RDC, Muzo FM, Radio Kampus, and press: Newsweek, Rzeczpospolita, Gazeta Prawna, bankier.pl, natemat.pl.

I write the blog Wernisażeria, the first blog about vernissages, because the vernissage is more than just an exhibition: it is also lighting, catering, music and people.
