H-Net's Network on the history, culture, art, politics, economics, and society of Poland.



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.

Re: Wymoczki Włoskowate

From a colleague in the biology department: "Wymoczki to jest nazwa archaiczna. Dzisiaj po polsku by sie powiedzialo "orzęski". To jednokomorkowe stworzonka, widoczne tylko pod mikroskopem z charakterystycznymi rzeskami (lub wloskami). Mysle, ze spokojnie mozna przetlumaczyc "wymoczki wloskowate" jako "ciliates"." 


H-Poland Book Reviews

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

I am happy to announce that H-Poland will shortly begin publishing book reviews, and thought I would take this opportunity to introduce myself as our book review editor. I am very excited about this development, which will allow reviews to reach scholars with unprecedented speed and increase the opportunity for discussion and engagement on our network.  

As we begin this process, I would welcome suggestions regarding new/recent books which you think would be of value to our readers. Also, please let me know if you have an interest in reviewing works dealing with a specific area of Polish Studies.  I can be reached at paulbryk@umich.edu and welcome all questions and suggestions.
