From September 1980 to 1989, she was a part of the independent publishing movement. She was the author of articles, the editor and reviewer of texts, in "Hutniku" and " Małopolska monthly".[2]

Antas published two monographs on lying and negation called: O mechanizmach negowania (Kraków 1991), and O kłamstwie i kłamaniu (Kraków 1999).

O kłamstwie i kłamaniu (On Lies and Lying) is notably the first Polish book devoted entirely to the phenomenon of lying in the process of verbal communication. The subject is closely related to both logic and philosophy from within the realm of linguistics. The human strategies discussed include partial judgments, false conclusions, misleading silence, secrets, half-truths, compliments, white lies and nonverbal lies.

She appeared at the GESPIN 2009 "Gesture and Speech in Interaction" conference.[3]
