European University Viadrina has launched a new platform – Polish-Studies.Interdisciplinary (www.pol-int.org) – to promote networking and the exchange of expertise in the Polish studies academic community.
Launched in May, Polish-Studies.Interdisciplinary (Pol-Int) is the first online platform for academic information and international exchanges in Polish studies. Pol-Int enables students, academics, researchers and journalists with an interests in Poland to exchange ideas and information across boarders and disciplines.
"Pol-Int is an interactive platform that acts as a kind of a ,marriage market' for Poland researchers worldwide" says Prof. Dagmara Jajeśniak-Quast, the project’s leader.
The platform offers relevant information in German, Polish and English from the area of Polish studies: latest publications, reviews, jobs and funding opportunities, conference announcements as well as reports and call for papers. Pol-Int allows researchers to discuss, present ongoing projects, and find project partners. Institutions from all over the world having Polish studies in focus can now introduce to each other and engage in dialogue.
Not only the registered users but also our academic advisory board supported by a broader community of professional editors and reviewer from Germany, Poland, Japan, USA, Italy, Austria, the Netherlands and many other countries is responsible for the contents of the online platform. Information about interdisciplinary Polish studies is also available via Newsletter.
Pol-Int is aimed at researchers from the disciplines of history, cultural studies, linguistics, literature, economics, law, political science, sociology, anthropology, architecture and art history, musicology, theater and film studies, philosophy, gender studies, and geography.
The project is a joint initiative at the Center for Interdisciplinary Polish Studies at the European University Viadrina in Frankfurt (Oder), Germany, and the Collegium Polonicum in Słubice, Poland, supported
by numerous academic partner institutions. The project is financed by the German-Polish Science Foundation, the Foundation for Polish-German Cooperation and the European University Viadrina (www.europa-uni.de).
