We aim to develop the Halle-Jena-Leipzig university network into an internationally visible centre of Polish studies. This is to be achieved in particular through interdisciplinary events, but also through subject-specific discussions. In addition, some of our activities are aimed at the interested public, to whom we would like to bring Polish history, language, society and culture closer.
The academic events include regular colloquia, conferences, workshops and lecture series, and in the long term also summer schools. For students we offer block seminars, which are an integral part of the Interdisciplinary Polish Studies programme, as well as excursions to Poland.
A Polish film series in cooperation with the Polish Institute Leipzig, the Imre Kertész Kolleg Jena, the Puschkino in Halle, the German-Polish Society Saxony-Anhalt and the Saxony-Anhalt State Centre for Political Education has a broader public impact. The films in these series as well as future readings of Polish literature are thematically related to the research fields of the centre.
