If you have a question about this talk, please contact slavonic.

A free, one-day conference on the extraordinary diversity of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, an early modern state that integrated various different ethnic groups, cultures, languages and religions, often with relative mutual respect and tolerance. At the same time, diversity also led to conflicts and controversies. The conference will include Polish, Lithuanian, Ruthenian, Ukrainian, Belarusian, Jewish, German and Ottoman perspectives on the Commonwealth.

Speakers will include some of the most distinguished names in scholarship and creative work on the Commonwealth:

• Norman Davies, St Anthony’s College, Oxford • Karin Friedrich, University of Aberdeen • Robert Frost, University of Aberdeen • Tomasz Grusiecki, Central European University • Leszek Korporowicz, Jagiellonian University, Kraków • Simon Lewis, Freie Universität Berlin • Olenka Pevny, University of Cambridge • Kristina Sabaliauskaitė, novelist and art historian • Magda Teter, Fordham University

Attendance is free. Guests are very welcome to attend the entire day or just selected sessions. Please reserve a free ticket via Eventbrite.
