Dr. Chodakiewicz completes European lecture circuit

Marek Chodakiewicz in Poland, August 2014 (1)Dr. Marek Chodakiewicz, the current holder of the Kościuszko Chair of Polish Studies, has returned from his European lecture circuit during which he promoted his new book on post-communism in Poland, Transformacja czy niepodległość? [Transformation or Independence?].

He spoke in many cities throughout Poland, including: Warsaw (where he also lectured on the anti-Nazi, anti-Soviet Polish underground resistance), Kraków, Tarnów, Lębork, Tczew, Gdańsk, Chojnice, Miastko, Bytów, Łódź, Wyszków, Skarżysko-Kamienna, Kielce, Radom, Łeba, Szwajcaria Kaszubska, Szczecin, and Elbląg.

In addition, Dr. Chodakiewicz delivered two lectures in London: one on Poland’s post-communist “transformation,” and another on “freedom in light of the English legal tradition as compared to the legal culture of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth.”

The trip also included a short sojourn in Turkey, where the historian toured the ruins of the ancient Greek city of Ephesus on the Aegean Sea coast.

Last but not least, Dr. Chodakiewicz visited Ukraine. He will discuss his observations on the situation in that Central and Eastern European nation during the first Intermarium Series Lecture of the fall semester on 10 September at 2:00 PM.
