Publishing Institution:

Centre for East European Studies, University of Warsaw

In introducing the history of Eastern Studies in Poland – which the modern day Centre for East European Studies UW is rooted in – it is necessary to name at least two of the most important Sovietological institutions during the inter-war period – East European Institute in Wilno (1930-1939) and Eastern Institute in Warsaw(1926-1939). Inspiration for the Centre can also be found in the Sovietological research carried out after World War II, focused entirely within Polish émigré communities. It is especially worth noting the “Reduta” Eastern Institute in London as well as the émigré Institute of Literature in Maisons Laffitte in France, created and managed by Jerzy Giedroyc.
