On March 5, 2020, at the Kazimierz Palace, the Executive Director of the US-Polish Fulbright Commission Justyna Janiszewska and Professor Maciej Duszczyk, the UW Vice-Rector for Research and International Relations, signed an agreement establishing the Fulbright Distinguished Chair in Humanities and Social Sciences at the American Studies Center. Among the guests present were Professor Tomasz Basiuk, the Director of the Institute of the Americas and Europe, the ASC Director Grzegorz Kosc, Paulina Kubylis, the Fulbright Senior program officer, and Anna Sadecka of the UW International Office. The Chair will be reserved for preeminent American Studies scholars with an outstanding publication record in their fields. The first professor visiting the ASC under the program will come to Warsaw in the fall of 2021.
It was also an event during which an analogous agreement was signed, establishing the Distinguished Chair in East European and Eurasian Studies at the Center for East European Studies, whose representatives were also present.
