The project focuses on issues related to the modern theme of feminism, including "women's" writing, in the fields of literature, art and media. In 2007 (Sofia, October 4 and 5) a Bulgarian-Polish scientific conference called "Women in Public Discourse in Bulgaria and Poland (Literature, Arts, Media)" was held with an emphasis on modern interpretation and consideration of the processes in a comparative plan, as the issue was situated in a broad Balkan, pan-European and common human context. With the help of the Institute for Literary Studies at the Polish Academy of Sciences and the Polish Institute in Sofia, a Bulgarian-Polish bilingual collection Describing a Woman: Bulgarian-Polish Discussions in the Years of Transition (Sofia, 2009) was published, containing the conference reports. Within the project, lectures by prominent Polish scholars were given at the Institute of Literature.
