The aim of the article is depiction of the scientific cooperation between historians
from Szczecin and Greifswald which is continuously developed in the beginning
of the 21st century. The cooperation based primary on the DAAD guest professorship
of Prof. Joerg Hackemann at the Institute for History and International Relationships
at the University of Szczecin, lectures held by Prof. Lutz Oberdörfer from Greifswald,
workshops at the EMAU lead by Dr. Paweł Migdalski, various research projects presented
there by Dr. Rafał Simiński and Dr. Tomasz Ślepowroński. To mention be in this
context the activity of Prof. Włodzimierz Stępiński and Prof. Jan M. Piskorski in the
German scientific life and their participation at many debates and historical conferences.
The rich contacts between the historians from both Pomeranian universities are referred
to in a new and original form of a Szczecin–Gryfino postgraduate programme, started
in the 21st century by the Institute for History and International Relationships at the University
of Szczecin and Historisches Institut Ernst Moritz Arndt Universität Greifswald.
Within this undertaking two meetings of postgraduates took place where their scientific
output was presented: on the 3rd/4th November 2010 in Szczecin and on the 26th/28th Mai
2011 in Greifswald. This initiative is for young researchers of importance – it allows their
development outside of the only one, native research milieu. Unfortunately, the project
of postgraduates from Szczecin and Greifswald is one of only few initiatives within the
Polish-German historical neighbourhood.
