Date of foundation:
1998
Aims and objectives / a description of the organization’s activities in the fields of
education, research and publishing on Canada:
The mission of PACS, according to its Constitution, is:
1. to encourage activities in the field of Canadian studies in all scholarly disciplines,
2. to promote the spreading of knowledge and information on Canada,
3. to develop and maintain links among scholars and academics dealing with Canadian
Studies in Poland as well as to develop contacts with Canadianist community abroad
and all people interested in any form of expanding knowledge about Canada,
These objectives are put into effect through:
a) organizing triennial congresses
The congresses serve as forums of academic debates on Canada-related issues and on the
condition of Canadian studies in Poland. Being international events, they gather both Polish
and non-Polish Canadianists, established scholars as well as graduate and postgraduate
students. The congresses provide also the opportunity and venue for meetings of PACS
General Assembly during which the new Executive is elected. Since the foundation of PACS
four such congresses have been held.
The First Congress, during which PACS was established, was organized in 1998 at the
University of Warsaw by Prof. Józef Kwaterko and the late Prof. Nancy Burke. The
conference provided an opportunity for Polish Canadianists to discuss a variety of Canada1
related topics, and resulted in the publication of conference proceedings Visions of Canadian
Studies: Teaching, Research, Methodology / Visions d’études canadiennes: enseignement,
recherche, méthodologie.
In 2001 the Second Congress was held at Nicolaus Copernicus University in Torun. The
leitmotif of the conference were the controversial issues of Canadian identity as seen from the
literary, political and historical perspective. Selected conference papers were published in the
volume titled Exploring Canadian identities / Vers l'exploration des identites canadiennes.
The Third Congress was organized in May 2004 at the Jagiellonian University,
Kraków, in co-operation with the Central European Canadian Studies Network. The
conference examined the complex notions of place and memory in various Canadian
discourses in view of critical approaches offered by political, cultural, gender, Native, and
globalisation studies. So far it has been the biggest Canadianist event in Poland– 160 scholars
from all over the world took part in the conference, over 100 presented papers at the
conference. Conference debates were summarized in the extensive volume of selected
conference proceedings titled: Place and Memory in Canada: Global Perspectives / Lieu et
Mémoire au Canada: Perspectives Globales.
The most recent Fourth PACS Congress was held in Pulawy in April 2007 by the
Canadian Studies Center of Maria Curie-Sklodowska University. The conference was of
interdisciplinary nature and explored continuities between Canada’s past and the present. It
encouraged many contributors from a variety of scholarly disciplines. Selected papers were
published in the conference proceedings: Canadian Ghosts, Hopes and Values / Rémanences,
espérances et valeurs canadiennes. The Congress resulted also in the election of the present
PACS Executive under the presidency of Prof. Krzysztof Jarosz.
The upcoming Fifth Congress titled Towards a Critical Multiculturalism: Dialogues
between/among the Canadian Diasporas / Vers un multiculturalisme critique: dialogues
entre/parmi les diasporas canadiennes will be co-organized by University of Silesia and
Jagiellonian University and will be held in Krakow in October 2010. The organizers hope the
conference will discuss Canadian diversity and multiculturalism in very broad terms, reaching
far beyond what can be described as the official Government of Canada’s policy of
multiculturalism. T he organizers of the Congress wish to host an interdisciplinary event and
invite specialists, academic scholars, students, writers, artists and activists representing
various scholarly disciplines.

b) co-operating with other European and worldwide Canadianist organizations
From 1998 till 2003 PACS was part of the Central European Network for Canadian
Studies (CENCS), a body coordinating some of the Canadianist activities in the region. PACS
representatives participated in the meetings of the Central European Steering Committee for
Canadian Studies headquartered in Brno, and contributed, among others, to the creation of the
yearly Central European Journal of Canadian Studies (CEJCS). In 2003, when the CENCS
transformed into the Central European Association for Canadian Studies (CEACS), PACS
decided to remain an autonomous organisation, but cooperate with CEACS. Polish scholars
have contributed to the CEJCS and actively participate d in Canadianist conferences held in
Central Europe.
In 2002 PACS was granted associate membership in the International Council for
Canadian Studies, which remarkably widened academic opportunities for Polish Canadianists.
PACS members became eligible for and since then have regularly benefited from numerous
ICCS grants, scholarships and awards.
PACS is also part of the European Network for Canadian Studies (ENCS). ENCS helps to
expand Canadian Studies into new European areas and into new, non-traditional fields. The
network has made a great contribution to develop the European dimension of Canadian
Studies and to foster linkages between European Canadianists. PACS representatives
regularly attend meetings of presidents or representatives of European Canadian Studies
associations . Polish Canadianists take active part in the conferences and seminars coorganized by the ENCS.
c) disseminating information on Canadianist activities and Canada
PACS puts a lot effort to keep its members informed of what is happening in Canadian
Studies at local, regional and international levels. Our members regularly receive circulars by
emails with the latest news on Canadian Studies, and Canada-related academic and cultural
events in Poland and in the region. Through circulars we promote our own grants as well as
the grants and programs offered by ICCS-CIEC (FRP/FEP, Postdoctoral Fellowships,
Graduate Student Scholarships) and the Government of Canada (Understanding Canada). We
exchange information and closely cooperate with our regional Canadian Studies partners
(CEACS, GKS, ENCS). Most important information and announcements are placed on our
webpage, which is currently under reconstruction and will receive a new, more modern and
friendlier outlook. Each year we publish a newsletter (edited by M. Gabrys, T. Soroka) that
informs PACS members about the latest events, publications on Canadian topics and plans for
3
future actions in Canadian Studies in Poland. For the past two years the newsletter has been
published as part of our new journal: TransCanadiana. A Polish Journal of Canadian Studies
/ Revue polonaise d’Etudes Canadiennes.
d) promoting multidisciplinary and outreach Canadianist ventures
PACS has managed through the years to support a number of important Canadianist
ventures including conferences, publications, lecture tours, and research trips. We always
attach a lot of weight to the interdisciplinary nature of the ventures we co-finance, promoting
preferably those which encourage contributors from a variety of scholarly disciplines to offer
their unique perspectives upon Canada; and those that involve not only scholars, but also
students, pupils and general public. In addition to triennial congresses, PACS supports and coorganises other regular (us ually annual) events:
•
Days of Canadian Culture – a major outreach event organized each year by the
Canadian Studies Centre of the University of Silesia in Sosnowiec. T hese
interdisciplinary symposiums and workshops aim at exploring and celebrating the
uniqueness, complexity and diversity of Canadian culture. The event constitutes
invariably an unprecedented opportunity for Polish academics, students and
general public to attend lectures, presentations, performances and film showings
which debunk old stereotypes about Canada and foster recognition of and regard
for Canadian culture. The event includes participation of recognized Canadian
scholars, artists and activists..
•
Journées de la Francophonie – an outreach event organized by the Canadian
Studies Centre, Nicolaus Copernicus University, which brings together scholars,
students and non-academic audiences of different age. It is designed to promote
the cultures of French-speaking countries with particular emphasis on the culture
of Quebec. The event includes lectures and competitions for the general audience,
especially high school students, and is usually accompanied by movie showings,
poetry readings, theatre spectacles, etc.
•
Journées Québécoises à Sosnowiec – an important event hosted by the University
of Silesia. This seminar designed to promote French-Canadian literature gathers
students of the French Department of the University of Silesia as well as a wider,
non-academic audience.
The symposiums and workshops are aimed at exploring and celebrating the
uniqueness and complexity of diverse Canadian cultures and worldviews. We believe they are
an unprecedented opportunity for Polish academic communities, students and general nonacademic public to engage with Canadian academics, writers, artists, storytellers, elders and
traditional knowledge keepers from across Canada. These outreach events are marked not
4
only by lectures and presentations, but also include storytelling, performances and films.
Fostering young generations of Polish Canadianists is a major goal for PACS.
e) encouraging, supporting and promoting research on Canada
We also try to encourage students and scholars representing various disciplines to join
PACS and start / continue their research on Canada. Not only do we promote – as an associate
member of ICCS – grants and programs offered by ICCS-CIEC and the Government of
Canada, but we also provide financial and scholarly assistance for the members of PACS
doing their research in the field of Canadian studies. We encourage active participation of all
our members in Canadianist activities through a developed system of our own grants and
awards. PACS offers the following grants / awards to its members:
•
Conference grants - cover part of travel expenses for Canadianists (PACS members)
who attend conferences outside Poland
•
Library grants - allow a partial cover of travel expenses and accommodation for
undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate students as well as for other scholars (PACS
members) who plan to do their research in the libraries of Canadian Studies Centres in
Poland or in European libraries
•
Lecture tours by Polish and foreign professors, and invited Canadian artists. All tours
are co-financed by receiving universities and PACS. One of the objectives is to enable
Polish students studying Canadian topics to participate in lectures of Canadian
Francophone and Anglophone scholars , literature professors, sociologists, film
directors, writers, poets, journalists etc.
•
Nancy Burke Best M.A. Thesis Award – This PACS Award is designed to promote
each year an outstanding M.A. thesis on a Canadian topic written in Poland (in either
Polish, French or English), and which contributes to a better understanding of Canada
in Poland. The award is consistent with the ICCS's strategy of fostering a new
generation of Canadianists.
f) encouraging and supporting academic and popular publishing on Canada
Numerous publications dealing with Canada-related topics have been published in
Poland throughout recent years, many of them co-financed by PACS. They represent a wide
spectrum of scholarly interests, from literature through history, linguistics, sociology, political
sciences, to psychology and cinematography. Below you can find a list of some of the recent
Polish publications on Canada, the majority of which have been written or edited by PACS
members and/or co-financed by PACS. The list includes two issues of "TransCanadiana", the
new, successful PACS journal published on a yearly basis, which we hope to develop into
both a respected venue for publication of Canadianist articles by Polish and foreign scholars,
and a source of current information related to Canadian Studies in Poland and PACS:

TransCanadiana (Polish Journal of Canadian Studies) is a peer-reviewed PACS journal
published by the Polish Association of Canadian Studies (editors-in chief: K. Jarosz, A.
Rzepa). The idea of the journal was first mooted in 2008, when the PACS celebrated its 10th
anniversary. The primary goal of its founders was to create the space for intellectual and
cultural exchange and to further the development of Canadian studies in Poland. The journal
has welcomed contributors from all over the world. Every issue comprises articles on a
subject specified by the editors, as well as short reviews of recent publications in the field of
Canadian studies, and a newsletter presenting information and updates on the activities of the
PACS and Canadia n Studies Centers in Poland.
The first volume of TransCanadiana (edited by: A. Branach-Kallas, A. Rzepa, E. Sojka)
was dedicated to, and published in memory of, Professor Nancy Burke, one of the founders of
the Polish Association of Canadian Studies. The second issue was devoted to the subject of
19
Canadian utopias (edited by: A. Branach-Kallas, D. Drewniak, R. Jarzebowska -Sadkowska, P.
Sadkowski). The third volume will be dedicated to the writings of these Canadian authors
whose literary career is intertwined with their academic activity. Sometimes, they only
become men and women of letters when their position at the university is already wellestablished; sometimes, they are writers first, and academics second; in still other cases, these
two career pa ths develop concurrently. In general, we are most interested in exploring the
connection
between
the
academic
and
literary
spheres
in
works
by Canadian
writers/professors. We also welcome reviews / summaries of recently published books related
to Canada and of Canadian books translated into Polish.
Topics might include, but are by no means limited to:
•
Influence of academic/theoretical awareness on modes of writing
•
Literature created by writers/professors as a possible literary genre
•
Reception of such literary works in Canada and outside of Canada
•
Interpretation of these works
•
Representations of the academe in Canadian literature
The composition of the executive body:
PACS Executive is elected by the General Assembly of PACS members for three-year
terms. The present PACS Executive is composed of four executive members: the President,
the Vice-President, the Treasurer, and the Secretary. Their term ends in October 2010. The
current PACS Executive members are as follows:
•
President: Krzysztof Jarosz (University of Silesia, Sosnowiec)
•
Vice -President: Agnieszka Rzepa (Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznan)
•
Treasurer: Marcin Gabrys (Jagiellonian University, Kraków)
•
Secretary General : Tomasz Soroka (Jagiellonian University, Kraków)
The Board of Control is PACS board of auditors: a supervisory body which oversees the
financial activity of the Board. It consists of three people from whom the President of the
Board of Control is elected. Its members regularly participate in the meetings of the
Executive Board. The present PACS Board of Control members are:
•
President: Radoslaw Rybkowski (Jagiellonian University, Kraków)
