International Student Conference

Thursday, July 20, 2006 - Monday, July 31, 2006

Poland in the Rockies, the bi-annual international student conference launched in Canada in 2004, is now accepting applications for 2006.

Poland in the Rockies is an intellectually stimulating summer program in Polish history and culture in English for young people of Polish descent. It brings together the best and the brightest students with the foremost authorities on Poland in an informal setting. The speakers come to the lovely resort town of Canmore, Alberta in the heart of the Rocky Mountains and stay for eleven days, allowing for lots of opportunities for informal conversation during meals, hikes or campfires to complement the formal lectures and discussions.

The speakers once again come from a wide variety of backgrounds, not only academic but journalism, politics, business, film and theatre. As of April 1, 2006, Washington lawyer and political scientist Mark Brzezinski; Newsweek International Senior Editor Andrew Nagorski; Globe and Mail journalist Esanislao (Stan) Oziewicz, 'Polityka' journalist Adam Szostkiewicz, historians Eva Plach, Robert Frost, Karin Friedrich and Marek Jan Chodakiewicz; director of Polish Studies at Indiana University and translator of modern Polish literature, Bill Johnston; director of Polish Studies at the University of Toronto, Tamara Trojanowska; film director Menachem Daum; film, television and theatre writer Eva Nagorski; and writer Irene Tomaszewski have confirmed their attendance.
