In the first episode of our podcast Talking Interdisciplinary Polish Studies, a special feature of the academic Polish Studies Blog, we cover nothing less than our common denominator – Polish studies.
For a closer look at this only seemingly self-explanatory term, we invited some of the leading German-speaking Polish studies scholars:
- Dagmara Jajeśniak-Quast – Professor for Interdisciplinary Polish Studies and head of the Center of the same name at the European University Viadrina in Frankfurt (Oder)
- Yvonne Kleinmann – Professor for Eastern European History and head of the Aleksander Brückner Center for Polish Studies at Martin Luther University in Halle
- Peter Oliver Loew – Head of the German Institute for Polish Affairs in Darmstadt and honorary professor at the Technical University in Darmstadt
- Ruprecht von Waldenfels – Professor for Slavic Philology at Friedrich Schiller University in Jena and deputy head of the Aleksander Brückner Center
The conversation is hosted by Anna Labentz, editor-in-chief of Pol-Int. In its first part, we put the question What are (interdisciplinary) Polish studies? front and centre. The second part – out on 2 June – focuses on the rather practical facets of Polish studies – the cooperation with international scholars of Polish studies and with Polish colleagues; the respective plans and outlooks for the three institutions; as well as the participants’ expectations and hopes for early career Polish studies scholars.
