On September 7-9, 2018 PAHA will be celebrating its 75th Anniversary. The Association is planning a three-day event to take place at Layola University in Chicago. 

The director of the Polish Studies Program at Layola - Bozena McLees - will serve as host to PAHA and its guests at the conference vnue located right on the waterfront of Lake Michigan. Polish Academy of Arts and Sciences (Kraków, Poland) is a proud partner to this event. Our program includes academic sessions related to PAHA’s contribution to the fields of migration and ethnic studies, association’s current research as well as community outreach projects. You will hear from some of the most promitent PAHA's scholars - of all generations. Our plan includes plenty opportunities for PAHA scholars to meet, interact and plan future programs with members of American Polonia. Dominic Pacyga, the key PAHA expert on history of Chicago, whose energy and talent continue to go into promoting Polish heritage in this city, will chair a session on Polish American history in Museums - both in the USA and in Poland. As a teaser to what’s coming up give a listen to a series of podcasts presented by Pacyga (part 1: http://wpna.fm/podcast/za-chlebem-part-1-journey-from-a-little-village-to-the-port-of-bremen/).
