British Studies Articles based on original research

The articles in this section have been produced from the University of Warsaw and UMCS Lublin under the supervision of Dr Zbigniew Mazur and Prof. Irmina Wawrzyczek. They represent the work of young researchers (based on their magister theses) with an appeal beyond their academic origin as you will see from their titles.

Almost all these papers were published by UMCS Lublin in 2003 in Studying "New" Britain: Popular Culture and Ideology, edited by Prof. Wawrzyczek and Dr Zbigniew Mazur.
