GEOP: Doctoral Seminars

In partnership with members of the Polish academic community, POLIN Museum has established a doctoral seminar devoted to the history and culture of Polish Jews. The seminar convenes once a month at POLIN Museum in Warsaw.

Participants represent such fields as history, literature, anthropology, sociology, art history, and Yiddish studies. The aim of the seminar is to integrate young scholars from various fields and academic institutions, and to provide them with access to experts from Poland and abroad. The seminar will also be attended by PhD supervisors, invited senior scholars, and POLIN Museum’s international fellows. We hope that the doctoral seminar will become a venue for the newest and most interesting research, meaningful scholarly discussion, and methodological reflection.

Every year, twelve doctoral candidates meet monthly at POLIN Museum to present and discuss their research in the presence of their colleagues and members of the Academic Board, invited distinguished guests, and GEOP Fellows.

Academic Board:

  • prof. Monika Adamczyk-Garbowska (UMCS, chair)
  • prof. Adam Kaźmierczyk (UJ)
  • prof. Dariusz Libionka (IFiS PAN)
  • prof. Anna Michałowska-Mycielska (UW)
