100th anniversary of Ethnology


2019 was the 100th anniversary of Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań and the presence of ethnology at the university in Poznań. In connection with this we were preparing for a great celebration. It took place as part of the 100th anniversary week from 8 to 14 April 2019. We started with a nationwide conference on the achievements of Poznan ethnology and the challenges of today (8-9 April). In the following days, in the urban space of Poznań for a wide audience, we presented our discipline through the works of students, graduates and employees of our Institute. We invited, among others, to a screening of documentary films from our archives (11 April, Kino Pałacowe). The 100th anniversary week culminated with a jubilee reunion of graduates of Ethnology, including an official part and an evening social gathering (13 April). At the end, an original programme was presented by the world folk music star Kapela ze Wsi Warszawa, which played in the Grand Hall of CK Zamek (14 April).




The 5th Congress of Graduates and Alumni of Ethnological Studies will be held on 13 April (Saturday) 2019 under the patronage of Prof. zw. dr hab. Zbigniew Jasiewicz, Prof. zw. dr hab. Aleksander Posern-Zieliński and Prof. zw. dr hab. Michał Buchowski. The programme of the congress includes the official part (speeches of the Faculty and Institute authorities and the graduates themselves), as well as an evening social gathering (with live music), which will take place in the “Beverly Hills” restaurant of the Academy of Hotel Management and Catering Industry in Nieszawa Street in Poznań.

The cost of participation in the Convention is:
50 PLN for those participating only in the official part,
