1772 – 2022: Consequences of the Partitions. New perspectives on the aftermath of the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth



The conference is devoted to an analysis of the long-term consequences of the Partitions of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth for communities living in the territories of the Russian, Habsburg and Prussian Empires. The 250th anniversary of the First Partition falls in 2022 and is an opportunity to reflect on the general reception and historic interpretation of the Partitions across the 19th century in order to reconstruct the diverse, non-linear and fragmented character of these transitions.
We understand the relationship between the imperial states, their representatives in the former Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, and the populations inhabiting these areas, as a multi-vector configuration in which changes within one also affected the other, and not always to the same extent.
