    On June 2, a scholar seminar “Conradian Crosscurrents: Creativity and Critique” was held at the Consulate General of Poland in New York. The seminar was part of a four-day conference devoted to Józef Conrad-Korzeniowski organized in cooperation with the Joseph Conrad Society of America and Fordham University.

    The guests were welcomed by Consul General Maciej Golubiewski, who emphasized the cultural diversity of Joseph Conrad’s works, while recognizing the elements of his Polish heritage.

     

    The seminar was a discussion panel featuring Polish scholars: dr. Lilia Omelan, dr. Grazyna Branny and dr. Joanna Skolik who analyzed and interpreted Joseph Conrad’s works in relation to the history of Poland and his “Polishness”. The moderator of the panel was a lecturer at Fordham University and author of numerous scholar papers and books devoted to Joseph Conrad’s works, dr. Christopher GoGwilt.

     

    The seminar was attended by more than 100 guests, including American scholars, mainly from Fordham and Columbia University, representatives of Polish-American cultural organizations, as well as students and universities offering Polish studies programs.
