Inscription. An Anthology 1

We are pleased to announce the online release of the first part of the English translation series "Inscription. An anthology 1" – a selection of 13 articles out of 535 dissertations with an introduction, published in the annual „Napis. Pismo poświęcone literaturze okolicznościowej i użytkowej” [„Inscription. Periodical on occasional and applied literature”] in the years 1994–2021. You can find them at the links: https://rcin.org.pl; https://www.napis.edu.pl/en/.

The first special issue contains necessarily only a small fraction of the journal’s output, but it shows both its versatility and the increase in humanistic knowledge and methodological awareness in occasional and applied literature.
