Polski film dokumentalny po 2005 roku. Koncepcje i doświadczenia
(Wydawnictwa Uniwersytetu Warszawskiego, 2023-05) Kopczyński, Krzysztof; Uniwersytet Warszawski
Polish documentary film after 2005. Ideas and experiences A summary Krzysztof Kopczyński is a professor at The Institute of Applied Polish Studies of the University of Warsaw and a producer and director of documentary films working on the international market. As a scholar he explores the links between literature, philosophy and film and documentary film. His most important monographs are Od romantyzmu ku erze nowych mediów [From Romanticism to New Media] (2003), Dybuk. Rzecz o nieważności świata [The Dybbuk. On the Unimportance of the World] (co-authored with Anna Sajewicz, 2017) and Paradygmat polskiego romantyzmu w uniwersum filmowym [The Paradigm of Polish Romanticism in the Film Universe] (2021). He has also recently published an article Religious and quasi-religious attitudes in four Polish documentaries from 2008-2019 (2021, https:// Between 1996 and 2016 he produced several dozen documentaries that were screened at more than 370 festi vals in 70 countries. He directed the award-winning documentaries Stone Silence (2007) and The Dybbuk: A Tale of Wandering Souls (2015). Professor Kopczyński is the winner of 25 film awards granted in 10 countries, a member of the European Film Academy, the Polish Film Academy, the Polish Filmmakers Association and Polish Society for the Film and Media Studies. The monograph approaches the subject mainly from a market perspective. Drawing on his own experience as a documentary film director and producer, the author describes the rules and practices of Polish documentary film in international co-production, at festivals and in distribution, especially international distribution. This does not mean the book is only aimed at film producers and distributors. Kopczyński is of the opinion that market success requires harmonious, creative and knowledgeable cooperation between all filmmakers and those who research the market and write about films. The more such cooperation is based on shared values, the better it will be for the common goal he sees as the ultimate one: enriching the epistemological and ethical achievements of documentary film and recognising the role of this film genre plays among audiovisual communications for which reality is a key reference point. T he book focuses on the years from 2005 to 2022. For the chronology of Polish cinema of the last half-century the following historical dates are of particular importance: 1980-1981 – the birth of “Solidarity” and the introduction of martial law in Poland; 1989 – the first partially free elections to the Polish Parliament and the fall of the Berlin Wall; 2004 – Poland’s accession to the European Union. The year 2001 – the beginning of a new century – is used in publications, but is of lesser importance. A more significant date – and therefore a turning point used in the title – is 2005, when, after several years of efforts made by Polish filmmakers, the Cinematography Act was passed on, leading to the establishment of the Polish Film Institute, which radically changed the Polish film market. The author also takes an interest in documentary film, which is undergoing a transformation in line with the tendencies emerging in the media in the age of convergence (e.g. interactive documentary film). Theoretical and market reflections are complemented by analyses of Polish documentaries, made “worlds away” from Poland, and about the expulsion of the Jews from Poland in 1968. The author uses the most important – mentioned in bibliography – Polish and English language publications (Angela J. Aguayo, Richard M. Barsam, Jonathan Kahana, David LaRocca, Katarzyna Mąka-Malatyńska, Bill Nichols, Michael Rabiger, Michael Renov, etc.).

(Wydawnictwa Uniwersytetu Warszawskiego, 2023) Budziszewska, Magdalena; Bohdanowicz, Zbigniew; Uniwersytet Warszawski
Klimatyczne ABC. Interdyscyplinarne podstawy współczesnej wiedzy o zmianie klimatu
(Wydawnictwa Uniwersytetu Warszawskiego, 2023) Budziszewska, Magdalena; Kardaś, Aleksandra; Bohdanowicz, Zbigniew; Uniwersytet Warszawski
Klimatyczne ABC to kompendium rzetelnych informacji na temat zmiany klimatu pochodzących z renomowanych źródeł, powstałe z inicjatywy naukowców zatrudnionych na Uniwersytecie Warszawskim. Jego autorzy są pracownikami najważniejszych ośrodków akademickich, ekspertami w swoich dziedzinach nauki. Efektem ich współpracy jest podręcznik łatwy w lekturze i interdyscyplinarny – tak jak sam problem zmiany klimatu. Poruszane w nim zagadnienia powiązane są z takimi dziedzinami jak: fizyka, chemia, biologia (w tym ekologia), geografia, nauki społeczne, psychologia i wiedza o społeczeństwie. Książka jest podzielona na cztery części, które przedstawiają mechanizmy (część 1) i przyczyny (część 2) zmiany klimatu, konsekwencje tego procesu dla życia na naszej planecie (część 3) oraz działania, które możemy podjąć, aby zapobiec najbardziej negatywnym skutkom tych zjawisk (część 4). Książka jest skierowana do studentów zainteresowanych lepszym zrozumieniem podstaw zmiany klimatu niezależnie od kierunku studiów oraz do nauczycieli i uczniów szkół średnich, a także do wszystkich osób szukających inspiracji do właściwych działań.
Odrębność samorządu uczniowskiego od dyrektora szkoły. Glosa do wyroku Wojewódzkiego Sądu Administracyjnego w Kielcach z dnia 27 maja 2021 r., II SAB/Ke 42/21
(Wydawnictwa Uniwersytetu Warszawskiego, 2023-06) Wolanin, Mikołaj; Uniwersytet Warszawski
In the commentary, the author analyses the judgment of the Voivodeship Administrative Court in Kielce, which stated that “the school principal cannot be obliged to inform about the basis of the decision made by (...) the student council in the form of access to public information”. While agreeing with this court decision, the author elaborates on the question whether the student council is part of the school as a public authority; whether, on this basis, its activities are subject to the public information; and whether the school council may be represented outside by the principal of the school where this student council exists. Therefore, by carrying out the dogmatic (linguistic and logical) analysis of the current norms, literature, and the ruling itself, the author comes to the conclusion that the student council is a body separate from the principal of a public school, and therefore the principal cannot represent it outside. That is why, in the author’s opinion, the information about the activities of the student council is not a public information. The author in his gloss extended the topics the Court has signalized in its judgment, hoping to contribute to the scientific knowledge of the issues that have been so far rarely analyzed.
Czym jest lingwistyka dyskursu?
(Wydawnictwa Uniwersytetu Warszawskiego, 2022) Czachur, Waldemar; Uniwersytet Warszawski
The paper presents the premises of discourse linguistics as a research program that draws on the broadly defined changes in the humanities. Discourse linguistics studies the discursively shaped relations between the use of language, collective belief systems, knowledge selection processes, and culture; it also asks how linguistic perspectivising creates socially shared meanings, thus modelling specific views of reality. I assume that discourse linguistics becomes an integrative and designing discipline. It integrates different theoretical, methodological and methodical perspectives in designing its research subject, cognitive objective and research procedure.
