GRANASLAVIC 2019, "Jornadas Andaluzas de Eslavística”
The Slavic conference, which took place on July 9-11, 2019 at the Translation Department of the University of Granada in Spain, can be without hesitation described as one of the hottest scientific events of this summer. The attraction was not only the place itself - not without reason, the old Spanish proverb says that whoever did not see Grenada did not see anything - but also the subject matter; it should be noted that the last conference organized by the section of Slavic philology of the local university took place in 2014 - and who knows, maybe we’ll wait next five years for another edition?

“The Skamandrites” in digital reality
The project "The Skamander Triad in exile. Editing the letters of Jan Lechoń, Kazimierz Wierzyński and Mieczysław Grydzewski" is an example of combining the tradition of "flashcard and pencil" with modern technologies, mixing a fully professional critical study with an open access to knowledge and merging scientific sources, the rustle of pages of a printed book with a functional digital edition. It concerns the correspondence of the eminent representatives of Polish literature and culture of the 20th century, the poets Jan Lechoń and Kazimierz Wierzyński, and the editor Mieczysław Grydzewski. The collection of their letters, located at the Polish Institute of Arts & Sciences of America with headquarters in New York and the Polish Library in London, is an important part of the Polish cultural heritage. We have talked about the project with its authors: Dr. Beata Dorosz, PhD DSc, Professor of The Institute Of Literary Research of the Polish Academy of Sciences, a member of the Department of Contemporary Literature Documentation, and Dr. Bartłomiej Szleszyński, Head of the New Panorama of Polish Literature team of the Digital Humanities Centre at the Institute Of Literary Research of the Polish Academy of Sciences.
