Language, identity, memory. Thinking of Silesia as deconstruction
Język, tożsamość, pamięć - myślenie Śląska jako dekonstrukcja
Languages of publication
This article is an attempt to describe present situation of Silesia. I will argue that only through the concepts of deconstruction and hospitality one can think of Silesia as referring to its multicultural tradition in terms of modern, European community. I will connect the work of Jacques Derrida with comments of Silesian thinkers on the status of Silesia. Also, I will investigate the role of Silesian language in terms of paleonomy and I will develop the concept of culture of hospitality based on the theme of mourning and "Europe of hope."
