KOBIECE „WYMIARY” CZASOPISMA „ONOMASTICA”
FEMALE “DIMENSIONS” OF THE “ONOMASTICA” JOURNAL
Languages of publication
The article is an evaluation of the contribution of women to the development of the “Onomastica” journal in the years 1955–2016. The author presents the “feminised” history of the journal as an equally valid alternative to the “typical” masculinised timeline. The theoretical context here is based on M. Foucault’s concept of power-knowledge and the idea of herstory in science. The article shows general numerical tendencies regarding women’s contributions to the article throughout 60 years of its existence and describes differences and discrepancies. The author outlines how during the first 30 years of the existence of the journal (1955–1985), there were not many female contributors, but their number grew between 1985 and 2016. The author argues that the reason for such changes is the emancipation of female scholars in the 1950s, 60s and 70s, and structural changes in the academic life in Poland after the Second World War. She highlights the work of scholars whose influence on the journal has been the most significant since the establishment of the journal, such as M. Karpluk, M. Malec or H. Popowska-Taborska.
