Cultural Reflexivity in Poland and Beyond

Edited by Agata Dziuban and Paweł Tomanek

By cultural reflexivity we mean a certain relationship between social actors and cultural objects remaining at their disposal. These objects may include different forms of knowledge produced and distributed in a society… but also texts, images and material items experienced in aesthetic rather than cognitive ways… The relationship in question is one of active choice and appropriation, creative adjustment and attribution of an individualised meaning. Thus cultural objects employed in a ‘reflexive mode’ not only serve as social markers of a preestablished personal or social identity, but more importantly, they become involved in the process of self- or identity-formation, providing a specific medium through which individuals (and groups) can relate to themselves and to the social world.
