In partnership with members of the Polish academic community, POLIN Museum has established a doctoral seminar devoted to the history and culture of Polish Jews.

Within GEOP, POLIN Museum  invites eminent international scholars of Jewish history and culture to deliver public lectures in our series Old and New Questions in Jewish History and Culture.
