Księgozbiory, biblioteki, wydawnictwa i twórcy podczas konfliktów zbrojnych i politycznych. Stan badań i perspektywy badawcze

Zachęcamy do zgłaszania referatów oraz udziału w I międzynarodowej interdyscyplinarnej konferencji z cyklu „Wojna i książka” pt. "Księgozbiory, biblioteki, wydawnictwa i twórcy podczas konfliktów zbrojnych i politycznych". Stan badań i perspektywy badawcze. Poznań, 13-15 listopada 2019 r.

Zniszczona Biblioteka Raczyńskich w Poznaniu

Nadchodząca 80. rocznica wybuchu II wojny światowej będzie odpowiednią okazją do organizacji pierwszej konferencji z planowanego cyklu, której tematyka dotyczyć będzie bibliotek, księgozbiorów, wydawnictw  i twórców oraz kultury w czasach konfliktów zbrojnych i politycznych. 

Na konferencji zostaną zaprezentowane rozmaite kategorie strat kulturalnych związanych z książką podczas konfliktów zbrojnych i politycznych. Organizatorom zależy na podjęciu tematyki nie tylko z okresu II wojny światowej, lecz także konfliktów wcześniejszych (np. potopu szwedzkiego) i czasów bardziej współczesnych (zimna wojna, wojna w Iraku). Podczas konferencji poruszona zostanie również problematyka  ochrony zbiorów oraz sytuacji prawnej bibliotek i dóbr kultury w czasie wojny, a także rozmaite aspekty likwidacji strat kulturalnych.

Język konferencji: polski i angielski

Partner: Stowarzyszenie Bibliotekarzy Polskich, Narodowy Instytut Muzealnictwa i Ochrony Zbiorów

Traumatic Modernities: From Comparative Literature to Medical Humanities / International Conference and Seminars




In recent years linguistic conferences organized by the Białystok circle of neophilologists have established a strong tradition in terms of providing a forum for the exchange of views on the nature of language. It all started almost fifteen years ago, in 2002. The main aim of the conferences was to provide a meeting ground for a wide range of scholars: linguists, literary scholars, foreign language teaching methodologists, to mention but a few groups of researchers participating in the events. The conferences explored the relationship between language, culture, and social interaction. They were often organized in co-operation with French language scholars.
