The Faculty of History, and the Faculty of Culture and Arts of the University of Warsaw invite scholars and doctoral students to participate in the 5th National Conference of Historians of the 19th Century. The upcoming conference will be devoted to sources for the history of the Polish lands in the 19th century created and/or stored outside of the Polish territory, until 1918.

  • Methodologies, frames of interpretation, theoretical approaches
  • Analyses and interpretations
  • Case studies

We wish for the discussion to touch upon a range of problems, including source studies, theoretical studies, social imageries, and processes of social communication. Our time span includes the First World War.

The conference is scheduled for June 21-22, 2022. The languages of the conference are Polish, English and Russian.
