H-Poland is sponsored by the Polish Studies Association, an organization of scholars who specialize in the history, culture, art, politics, economics, and society of Poland. We hope that this list will serve as a discussion forum dealing with all aspects of Polish studies, as well as a place to post announcements of upcoming events or new publications. Although this is not a requirement, we encourage all those who participate in H-Poland to join the PSA.
