Please join the East Central European Center at the Harriman Institute for a discussion with Magda Szcześniak (University of Warsaw; Visiting Assistant Professor, Duke University).

As the recipient of a prestigious research grant for work in a preeminent US Cultural Studies program, Magda Szcześniak will briefly discuss the challenges and opportunities, both intellectual and institutional, for conceiving and launching viable research projects focusing on Polish culture within the US academy. Following this, a discussion will follow, in which students considering either applying for funding in the region or embarking on careers within it can pose questions, both to Professor Szczęśniak and for open discussion, regarding productive avenues of research and institutional collaboration, both in and out of Poland. Graduate and undergraduate students in any area of East-Central European Studies are encouraged to attend.
