(Title in Polish - ' Postkolonialne refleksje. Na marginesie pracy zbiorowej 'From Sovietology to Postcoloniality: Poland and Ukraine from a Postcolonial Perspective' pod redakcja Janusza Korka'). The authoress links colonialism to the development of national consciousness in Europe in the eighteenth century. She further posits that at the core of colonialism lies transformation of even tiny into a periphery. She then compares European colonialism in Africa and Asia to Russian/Soviet colonialism in Europe and Asia. Her comment about the transformation of consciousness in Poland under colonialism has to do with the construction of the 'substitute hegemony' in Polish discourse. She concludes that Polish and Ukrainian scholars differ in major ways with regard to their treatment of colonial appropriation of their respective countries.
