About the Author

Urszula Terentowicz-Fotyga is Assistant Professor of English Literature and Culture at Maria Curie-Sklodowska University in Lublin. She is the author of a book study on Virginia Woolf's novels (2006). Her main research interests are modernist and postmodernist fiction, semiotics of space and urban theory and representation.


Configured against a rich background of the existing theoretical and critical reflection, the book Dreams, Nightmares and Empty Signifiers by Urszula Terentowicz-Fotyga successfully attempts to integrate the often ambivalent ideologies and contradictory political stances ascribed to the country house in various critical readings by approaching it as an element of the semiosphere with dynamic shifts of discourses, values and meanings. Presenting the country-house topos as part of broadly conceived literary tradition, Urszula Terentowicz-Fotyga boldly redefines the theoretical paradigms so far dominant in the critical discourse.
