„Zwierciadło na gościńcu”

Ukazała się książka  prof. Antoniego Sułka A Mirror on the High Road: Chapters from the History of Social Research. Opublikował ją Peter Lang przy wsparciu Instytutu Socjologii UW.
The book is a collection of articles and essays devoted to important studies conducted by Polish sociologists in the course of more than a hundred years. It displays not only the discipline’s scholarship but also the society studied, with its questions and problems, from the end of the 19th to the beginning of the 21th century, from partition times through the interwar period to the Great Depression, and then from real socialism to the fall of communism and the systemic transformation toward democracy. In this sense, sociological research is Stendhal’s “mirror carried along a high road”, where Polish society parades. The findings have been important sources for the social history of Poland.

Dedykacja: In memory of Jakub Karpiński, who both wrote history and helped create it.

Ze wstępu autora: I wrote the studies contained in the present volume during my years at the University of Warsaw, where I was first a student in the Department of Philosophy (1963-1968) and then later combined research and teaching in the Institute of Sociology (1968-2018). With this book I end my work at that excellent academic institution.  28 September 2018.

Three-year Horizon 2020 Project
‘Disputed Territories and Memory’

logo-h2020_2Our Institute is a part of a three-year Horizon 2020 Project “Disputed Territories and Memory”.
Disputed Territories and Memory (DisTerrMem) is a three-year EU-funded Horizon 2020 project in which an international team of researchers from six organisations will collaborate to explore the management of competing memories of disputed territories across borders.
Working across three key regions (Europe, South Asia and the South Caucasus), the project will explore the roles of civil society groups, cultural practitioners, nation states and regional organisations in managing such memories, and will culminate in the development of a new and innovative model for understanding the successful management of competing memories in non-conflictual ways in the context of peace-building.
The project is led by the University of Bath (UK), in collaboration with five partner NGOs and universities: University of Warsaw (Poland), Borderland Foundation (Poland), National Academy of Sciences (Armenia), Education & Cultural Bridges (Armenia) and Forman Christian College (Pakistan).
