Dear Sir/Madam

A need to publish a scientific journal devoted to the history of Galicia was already indicated in the spring of 2009, when the International Research Team ‘Galicia 1772-1918’ began its work in the Institute of History at the University of Rzeszów. The team gathering historians from Austria, Czech Republic, Poland, Slovakia, Ukraine and Hungary organized six international scientific conferences in Rzeszów, Przemyśl, Poznań and Lviv. Conferences were followed by publications: ‘Galicia 1772-1918. Methodological difficulties, current state and needs of research’ by A. Kawalec, W. Wierzbieniec and L. Zaszkilniak (eds.), volume 1-3; ‘Galicia and January Uprising’ (2013) by M. Hoszowska, A. Kawalec and L. Zaszkilniak (eds.) published in Warsaw-Rzeszów; ‘Galician roads and roadless tracts: a study of infrastructure, organization and culture of travelling’ (2013) by J. Kamińska-Kwak (ed.) published in Rzeszów; ‘Everyday life, economy, culture and Polish society in 1772-1918. Dissertations about the history of Polish lands in the period of partitions’ (2015) by W. Łazuga and D. Szymczak published in Poznań; ‘Between politics, history and historical memory. Studies of Polish history in the post-partition period’ (2015) by W. Łazuga and S. Paczos (eds.) published in Poznań; ‘Woman in Galicia. Modernity and Tradition’ (2016) in book series: ‘Galicia and its heritage’ by J. Kamińska-Kwak, S. Kozak and D. Opaliński (eds.) published in Rzeszów. 


Invitation to cooperation

Dear Sir/Madam,
We would like to present our readers with the fifth volume of the journal “Galicja. Studia i materiały”, which we have dedicated to philosophy in Galicia. Currently we are working on the preparation of the sixth volume which will be published in 2020.
The subsequent volumes will deal with the issues of mobility in Galicia, extended with various aspects of the phenomenon of modernisation in Habsburg countries with references to the present day.
As you have seen, since the second tome of ‘Galicia. Studies and Materials’ we are trying to make them thematically specialized. The policy will be continued in forthcoming issues, however thematically diversified tomes are also planned. Subject matters of next issues will be dependent on your proposals.
We are interested in a wide filed of Galician history, including its political, social-economic, sociological and cultural aspects. We hope for cooperation with researches focusing on culture, history of law and system, history of education and educational system, press, history of historiography, history of literature, arts, architecture and music. We ask for applications, including papers presenting everyday life in Galicia, biographic texts depicting eminent Galician characters and authorized interviews with scholars dealing with the history of the province. We look forward for new historiographical trends.
In the journal we will present sources and materials about the history of Galicia, reviews and write-ups of works concerning the history of the province.
We are cordially inviting you to the cooperation.

The journal “Galicja. Studia i materiały” is included in the list of ranked academic journals prepared by MNiSW [Ministry of Science and Higher Education] – it has 20 points.

What experience and history teach is this - that nations and governments have never learned anything from history, or acted upon any lessons they might have drawn from it.
