Experiences of Aging in Post-Socialist Poland | Dissertation Reviews

Robbins uses Polish broadsheet newspaper Gazeta Wyborcza's 2008 series "Poland Is No Country for Old People" as a starting point for analyzing public discourses about what it means to be an older person in Poland and, consonant with Robbin's concern with 'moral personhood', how they should live.
The chapter compares viewpoints from Gazeta Wyborcza with the more conservative, Catholic publication Nasz Dziennik. While the newspapers seem to agree by number of references to old age, that being an older is some kind of exceptional state and of particular symbolic importance in Poland, the pictures they paint of being older differ. Gazeta Wyborcza presents an image of Poland as a bad place to grow old, where older people are overlooked and marginalized, granting that succor might be found in idealized, youthful, and crucially "active" (p. 111) pursuits such as 'skiing, sex' (p.112), "the current prestigious ideology of aktywnosc" (p. 11) constituting a particularly fascinating theme, which appropriately enough courses through the thesis. In contrast, in Nasz Dziennik "old people are warmly described as the "treasure" (skarb) of the family and the nation, as those who (along with mothers) can best raise young children" (p. 89). Here, Robbins makes the particularly insightful observation that within Nasz Dziennik discourses, older people are painted as 'providing care for grandchildren, [but] they are also positioned as receivers of care in illness-something that, in contrast to Gazeta Wyborcza, is not stigmatized, but rather treated as a valuable experience of suffering' (p. 89). Historical and media studies methods, including detailed analysis of aging-centred articles in Polish newspapers Gazeta Wyborcza and Nasz Dziennik.
