The image of Ukrainians in Polish print media – selected examples
Languages of publication
This article introduces the problems connected with the image of Ukrainians in the Polish press, based on some important events that led to the inclusion of this subject for public discourse. The first of it was the attitude of Poles to Ukrainians working in Poland, the second – revolution on Kiev’s Maidan, and the third – problem of education of foreigners in Poland, especially Ukrainians. The author focuses on the press articles (on local and national coverage), because press is still the main determinant of stimulating the tone and quality of public discussion. Surprising that these topics caused a specific narrative, which was largely based on stereotypes, although most of these issues arose precisely from such a perception of Ukrainians. Therefore extremely interesting, according to the author, was the way of conducting narration in newspapers and magazines, mainly determined by the ideological inclination of the press, or insufficient deepening of the depicted problems.
