The College of Eastern Europe, in cooperation with the European Network Remembrance and Solidarity, and the Ossolinski National Institute, with funding from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Poland, is organising the International School “Poland and Central and Eastern Europe”. This School is dedicated to people writing about Poland and Central and Eastern Europe. It comprises lectures and study visits to Warsaw, Bialystok, Cracow, and Wroclaw, and is an excellent opportunity to meet Polish scholars, social and civil society activists as well as representatives of public administration. It offers a chance to learn more about Polish history and culture in terms of the co-existence of different cultures and religions— Christian, Jewish, and Muslim. The organisers are now inviting interested persons to apply for this International School!

The stay in Poland for this School starts on 1 October 2017 in Warsaw and ends on 12 October 2017 in Wroclaw. It is dedicated to young historians, social scientists, journalists, and social activists of Polish and Central European history. It is open to people from Western and Eastern Europe, the USA, Canada, Israel, Caucasus, Japan, and China. The language of instruction is English. Participants should be under 40 years old, and each participant will be required to publish a text on a topic covered during the School, within six months following the School.

Candidates are asked to complete the electronic application form. The deadline is 15 August 2017. More information can be found here.
