Category: Conferences, Editorial notes, XXw, News, Political history, Social history, Economic history, Memory studies, Historical Policy


The Polish Institute of Arts & Sciences of America invites presentation proposals for our 76th Annual Conference to be held at the Harriman Institute,  Columbia University in New York City, June 8-9, 2018.

Proposals are solicited for complete sessions or individual papers in any of the disciplines in the liberal arts, sciences, or business/economics. Since the Institute values comparative sessions, individual papers need not focus on Poland or the Polish diaspora, but it is hoped that at least one paper in each session will do so. Sessions including presenters from more than one nation are encouraged. Each session is scheduled for 90 minutes to accommodate three/four papers (20 minutes each). The conference language is English and all conference rooms will be equipped with AV for the use of PowerPoints and CD/DVD presentations. It is expected that acceptable conference papers will be submitted for possible publication in The Polish Review subsequent to the conference.

To submit a paper or complete session, please send the name, e-mail address, institutional affiliation, a tentative paper title and brief abstract for all presenters to the chair of the program committee at The deadline for proposals is April 15, 2018. All participants are expected to pay the conference registration fee.
