Graduate Student in Spanish

Wiktoria is originally from Kielce, Poland. In 2010 she moved to Madrid, Spain, where she obtained her bachelor’s degree in Spanish Language & Literature and a master’s degree in Literary Studies. Her final project was a critical analysis of the influence of Brecht’s and Valle-Inclán’s poetics on Alfonso Sastre’s social theater. Wiktoria’s academic work focuses on the literary spectrum of Medieval Iberia, centered around the question of how the historical coexistence of Christians, Jews and Muslims shaped the cultural space of Spain. Her research interests include medieval and early modern theories of translation and adaptation, as well as depictions of medieval aesthetics in contemporary fiction.
