Lynn Lubamersky

Lynn Lubamersky organized and chaired the Polish studies book panel discussion of “Money, Power, and Influence in Eighteenth-Century Lithuania: The Jews on the Radziwiłł Estates” by Adam Teller at the Association for the Slavic, East European and Eurasian Studies convention in Boston, Dec. 8-9. The book was sponsored by the Polish Studies Association since it is considered pathbreaking and provocative. Panelists included Maria Cieśla of the German Historical Institute in Warsaw, Poland, Karin Friedrich of the University of Aberdeen (U.K.), Gershon David Hundert of McGill University (Canada) and Adam Teller of Brown University.

Lubamersky also organized a research panel presentation titled “The Memory of the Polish Lithuanian Commonwealth.” Assistant Professor of Art Tomasz Grusiecki presented “Cartography as Entangled History: Geographic Depiction and the Search for a Shared Past” and Rustis Kamuntavicius of Vytautas Magnus University in Lithuania presented “Lie for the Sake of Objectivity: History Manuals in Lithuania, Poland, and Belarus Confronted.” Tomasz Błaszczak of Vytautus Magnus University commented on the papers.
