 The III Congress of International Researchers of Polish History

October 11-14, 2017 in Kraków.

This congress occurs every five years and is a cyclical meeting of academics from throughout the world who, in their research, address not only problems associated with Polish history but also within its culture, arts and sciences. This congress’s guiding theme is “The Polish Lithuanian Commonwealth: History – Memory – Legacy” („Dawna Rzeczpospolita: historia – pamięć – dziedzictwo”). Our aim is to gather in one place and at one time those scholars interested in the phenomena of the Polish – Lithuanian Commonwealth what it was, how it was memorialized over subsequent decades as well as what consequences or manifestations from its existence are seen in the later histories of Poland, Lithuania and the remaining countries who once found themselves within its sphere of influence.

We cordially invite and encourage you to take part in the deliberations of this upcoming congress.
