Habjan (ed.): Writing the Himalaya in Polish and Slovenian

Jernej Habjan, former member of the ICLA theory committee, has edited Writing the Himalaya in Polish and Slovenian, a special issue of Slavica TerGestina. The volume features ten articles on mountaineering literature, a genre that is as popular as it is under-researched. Examining writings by Polish and Slovenian pioneers of post-war Himalayan climbing, contributors approach mountaineering as the sport that takes more lives than any the other sport, while also giving us more autobiographies than any other sport—autobiographies that in turn give us new mountaineers.
