About our Society

The Scientific Society “Societas Vistulana” was founded in 1996 by the adepts of history of the Jagiellonian University, University of Warsaw and University of Gdansk ‒ the enthusiasts wishing to popularize history and support academic development of the young researchers by creating institutional frames and collecting financial resources for the research projects and academic publications. Today it brings together a great number of historians and representatives of the related sciences. The popularization of historical legacy and other objectives specified in the Statute are realized through academic conferences and dynamically developing publishing activities. The Society constitutes a significant element of Polish and international academic life.
