CFP: Polish and Belarusian Connections: Literature, History, Culture and Language; March 16-17 Warsaw

Deadline: February 1, 2018

This conference, similar to the previous conferences organised on the same theme,
will be devoted to the common heritage of both Poland and Belarus analysed from the
point of view of their history, culture, literature and languages, i.e. different aspects
that both nations share. The proximity of these two languages and cultures has lead
to establishing a specific form of dialogue, integration and, as a result, to creating
new and different qualities. On the other hand, fostering the tradition and legacy of
our ancestors has developed a sense of cultural identity, which is comprised by their
material heritage, patterns of behaviour or values.

The fates of Belarusians and Poles have been entwined for centuries, which has
provided stimuli to creativity and artistic passion. A great many Polish national
activists, writers or artists were born in the territory of today's Belarus, whereas
Belarusian ones within the former borders of Poland, which encourages scholars on
both sides of the border to search for new perspectives of analysing Polish and
Belarusian connections.

Scholars and researchers from both Poland and Belarus as well as other
countries will have a great opportunity to present the most recent results of their
studies during plenary sessions as well as three parallel panels on literature studies,
history and culture studies as well as linguistics.
  • The standard length of plenary talks will be 20 minutes; presentations within panels
  • should not exceed 15 minutes.
  • The languages of the conference are Polish and Belarusian. However, there is a
  • possibility to deliver a paper in Russian.
