We would like to inform that under the ERC StG Project – “Recycling the German Ghosts. Resettlement Cultures in Poland, Czechia and Slovakia after 1945 (SPECTRAL RECYCLING)”, implemented at the Institute of Slavic Studies, Polish Academy of Sciences, there was an open competition for the 1 research position. Based on the evaluation of the submitted documents and an interview, the recruitment committee decided to choose mgr Magdalena Bubík. Congratulations!
On Thursday 29 June 2023, the Institute of Slavic Studies of the Polish Academy of Sciences hosted the Evaluators visiting on behalf of the European Commission. The visit was related to the renewal of the ‘HR Excellence in Research’ logo – the certificate is awarded by the Commission to institutions which provide researchers with the best working and development conditions, foster mobility and pursue a policy of equal opportunities. ISS PAS joined the group of Polish institutions entitled to use the HR logo in 2017.
The June meeting and discussions were successful, and the Experts provided the Commission with their recommendations. The official report confirms the positive assessment of the Institute, expressed, among other things, in the following passage from the report: “ISS-PAS is actively supporting academic and non-academic staff at their professional growth using own resources and externalfunding. The institute strived to ensure its strategy actually responds to the needs of its constituency (…). Although the action plan was quite ambitious and challenging, they have invested significant efforts in implementing the HR strategy. (…) The approach of ISS-PAS towards HRS4R is remarkable”.
We are therefore pleased to announce that the Institute of Slavic Studies of the Polish Academy of Sciences – after some minor adjustments, which should be implemented in the near future – is still entitled use the “HR Excellence in Research” logo. This is a recognition which we are very happy about!

From 1 September this year until 29 February 2024, Dr Vadzim Shkliaryk from Belarus will be implementing the project “Little-known Polish-Belarusian texts in manuscripts from the 18th century: linguistic description in the context of historical dialectology” at the ISS PAS.

POLONISTA is a scholarship and fellowship programme of the Polish National Agency of Academic Exchange (NAWA) addressed to students and researchers. The objective of the Programme is to promote Polish language in the world by enabling foreigners interested in Polish language and Polish culture to study or carry out research projects in Poland.

We are proud to announce that our researcher, Dr Karolina Ćwiek-Rogalska, has been nominated for AcademiaNet – European Database of Outstanding Women Academic (https://www.academia-net.org/). AcademiaNet is a portal run by the Swiss National Science Foundation containing database of profiles of outstanding female scientists from all fields.
Outstanding female researchers are nominated for the database by more than 40 prestigious partner organisations (it is not possible to apply directly – a nomination is required). The selection criteria are rigorous and include scientific excellence and outstanding achievements in the discipline represented by the researcher.
Dr Karolina Ćwiek-Rogalska’s profile can be found by following the link: https://www.academia-net.org/profile/karolina-cwiek-rogalska/85735
AcademiaNet aims to create a database containing profiles of female experts from all disciplines. The platform should make it easier to find outstanding female representatives from the respective fields and contribute to the increased selection of female scientists for scientific committees and their more frequent invitations by universities and other institutions.
On May 31, 2023, Dr. Orest Semotiuk conducted an online workshop entitled “How to analyze political cartoons”. The event was organized by the Center for Journalist Solidarity of the National Union of Journalists of Ukraine. More information about the workshop can be found on the organizer’s website.
On June 2, at the invitation of the Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency (MSB), Dr. Semotiuk gave an online lecture entitled “Humor as a Weapon of War”.
In turn, from June 7–10, Dr. Semotiuk was in Brno (Czech Republic) for the 16th Congress of the International Society for Ethnology and Folklore (SIEF), “Living Uncertainty”. The Congress was organized by the Department of European Ethnology of the Masaryk University. The Congress was attended by ca. 800 participants, and its program included 100 panels covering 16 topics – from achitecture to religion. Dr. Semotiuk took part in the panel “Heritage as resistance – looking forward to cultural recovery,” during which he delivered a speech entitled “Superhero vs. butcher: Zelensky & Putin in political cartoons on Russian aggression”.
