Ad Americam: Journal of American Studies

Ad Americam. Journal of American Studies is published yearly by The Institute of American Studies and Polish Diaspora of Jagiellonian University, Krakow, Poland. The Institute was established in 2004. It emerged from the consolidation of various programs already in existence (Chair of American Studies, Center for Canadian Studies, Chair of Latin American Studies, Chair of the History of International Migration Movements and Chair of Sociology of Nation and Ethnic Relations).
The Chair of American Studies was founded in 1991 as an interfaculty research institution of the Jagiellonian University with the aim of teaching Polish students about different issues concerning the United States. In 1995 a program of doctoral studies was launched and in March 2000 the first Ph.D. dissertation was defended.
The Institute now functions within the Faculty of International Relations and Political Science.
The aim of the Institute is to further academic interdisciplinary research in American, Latin-American, ethnic, migration and Polish Diaspora studies.
The Institute offers the following programs of cultural studies for Polish students: American studies (three-year B.A., two-year M.A. and Ph.D.), Latin-American studies (two-year M.A.), ethnicity and nationalism studies (two-year M.A.).
Currently the Institute is about to start the M.A. program in TransAtlantic Studies (TAS). It is a comprehensive, full-time interdisciplinary postgraduate Masters program. It is directed primarily to foreign students who would like to study in Krakow. It is taught entirely in English. The program focuses on the political and cultural aspects of TransAtlantic relations. The graduates from the program will receive a diploma in cultural studies with major in TransAtlantic studies.
The Institute currently employs 24 academic staff.
The director of the Institute is Professor Andrzej Mania.
