The British Association for Slavonic and East European Studies (BASEES) Polish Studies Group is organising a multi-disciplinary workshop on Poland, which is also the fourth annual Polish studies workshop hosted by UCL SSEES.

Papers are invited on any aspect of contemporary Poland, Polish history or Polish migration (including migration to Poland).

The workshop will consist of two parts. Conference-style panels with 45 minutes per speaker, including discussion, on 19 September and the morning of 20 September will provide a forum for researchers, at all stages in their academic careers, to exchange detailed ideas about work in progress. The rest of the workshop, on 20 September, will be aimed particularly at PhD students. In Panel 5, established academics will offer advice about conducting research in Poland. In Panel 6, postgraduate students will discuss their experiences of collecting material for their PhDs.

Please send your proposed title and an abstract of up to 250 words to janek.gryta@bristol.ac.uk and anne.white@ucl.ac.uk by 16 August 2019. If you are a PhD student with an interesting story to tell at Panel 6, please explain why it would be valuable to share your experience with other students.

If you are a PhD student who plans to attend without giving a paper, please email Janek and Anne some information about your research project. This will help us organise Panels 5-6 to be most helpful to the largest number of students.

There is no conference fee. We hope to be able to cover travel costs for all speakers and in exceptional circumstances may also contribute to costs of accommodation.

Organisers: Janek Gryta, University of Bristol; Katarzyna Nowak, University of Manchester; Anne White, UCL SSEES.
