Polish/European History Module
“Most Serene Republic” – Polish – Lithuanian Commonwealth
The Polish are now the second largest ethnic group in Ireland after the Irish themselves. The two countries have similar histories suffering under the yoke of colonial powers. However, Poland was once the largest power in Europe in the 16th and 17th centuries. Unfortunately, this is often forgotten in our history books. It was a state advanced in terms of religious freedom decentralization and democracy – so students can relate it to current day issues.
The module has welcomed students from all backgrounds including Ireland, Poland, Serbia, Finland, and others. They are all working together to understand their nations relationship with Poland and to promote understanding and to share their love of history! Students participate in Art and research projects as a medium for learning.
Feel free to join!
Mondays and Tuesdays 4-5
