The “Greifswalder Polonicum” is an international summer school on science, culture and language of Poland, organised by the Alfried Krupp Wissenschaftskolleg Greifswald and the University of Greifswald. It is funded by the Alfried Krupp von Bohlen und Halbach-Stiftung, Essen, Germany. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, this year´s summer school will take place in a digital format. This year’s Polonicum focuses on the region of Cieszyn, the Polish-Czech borderland in the Sudetes. Three different cultural traditions meet, interact and clash here. Seminars on the topics of language, society, politics and literature provide the unique opportunity to learn more about Poland and the region of Cieszyn in its diversity. All courses are held by international acknowledged experts in their fields.

Academic chairs: Professor Dr. Bernhard Brehmer (Konstanz), Dr. Marek Fiałek (Greifswald), Professor Dr. Andreas Ohme (Greifswald)
