The 21st edition of Thesaurus Poloniae program is starting

On October 16, 2019, the ICC hosted scholarship holders of the 21st edition of the Thesaurus Poloniae scholarship program. The winners have just started a three-month stay in Krakow, during which they will focus on implementing their research projects.

Scholarship holders, selected from 20 candidates from 15 countries, present a wide range of interests in Central European subject matter. Research by prof. Taku Shinohary from Tokyo University of Foreign Studies will focus on the culture of remembrance in Poland and Central Europe, especially in relation to the history of the Jewish community in Galicia. Professor Gordana Jovanović, who lectures at the University of Belgrade on a daily basis, will attempt to assess the impact of the methodological output of the well-known Polish philosopher and sociologist Florian Znaniecki on the development of cultural psychology. In turn, Ahmad Nabaz Taher, who comes from Erbil, will analyze the impact of 20th century Polish graphics on the development of art and artistic education in Iraq. Currently, in the medieval cellars of the ICC, you can visit his exhibition entitled Dark East inspired by personal experiences and the difficult situation of civilians in the Middle East.

Thesaurus Poloniae is a three-month scholarship program of the Minister of Culture and National Heritage of the Republic of Poland, implemented by the International Cultural Center in Krakow since 2009. The program is addressed to foreign scientists conducting research on culture, history and the multicultural heritage of the Republic of Poland and Central Europe.
