|The Polish Heritage Society Grant
The Polish Heritage Society is a registered U.K. charity whose aim is to remember, record, and propagate among the wider British public the contribution of Poles to the shared cultural and historical heritage of the United Kingdom. The Society has generously donated £1,000 towards the work of the Joseph Conrad Society (U.K.) to sponsor research and writing that addresses any aspect of the Polish Heritage of Joseph Conrad, and that promotes an understanding which extends across cultural and linguistic boundaries. This donation is to be in the form of separate awards of £200 spread over five years, and 2014 saw the third of these.
In 2012 the award was made to Brygida Pudelko who presented her paper, "The Impact of Music and Painting on Turgenev's and Conrad's Art", at the International Conference in Bath.
In 2013 the award was made to Malgorzata Stanek to enable her to present her paper, "Some Reflections on Teaching 'Amy Foster' and 'Prince Roman' as Narratives Negotiating Identity", at the International Conference in Rome.
In 2014 the award was made to Joanna Skolik to enable her to present her paper, "Poland Revisited: A British Citizen on the Polish Problem", at the International Conference in Canterbury.
In 2015 the award was made to Ewa Kujawska-Lis to enable her to present her paper "Conrad's Mastery of Language in Early Marlow Narratives" at the International Conference in London.
In 2017 the award was made to the members of a panel from Silesia and Warsaw on 'Spectral Conrad' at the International Conference in London: Jacek Mydla, Karol Samsel, Anne Keithline and Agnieszka Adamowicz-Pospiech.
