About the Institute 

Siedlce University is a place with a long and rich history of educating prospective philologists. The Institute of Polish Studies and Foreign Languages was created in 2018 after two other institutes, the Institute of Polish Philology and Logopaedics and the Institute of Foreign Languages and Interdisciplinary Research, merged to form one and unified academic community.  

Currently, the Institute of Polish Studies and Foreign Languages in Siedlce offers three core programmes including Philology (English Studies, Russian Studies and German Studies), Polish Philology and Logopaedics and Audiology. We are proud to confirm that they are continually held in high regard by our students.

III Research area 

The Institute of Polish Studies and Foreign Languages in Siedlce is actively engaged in an academic dialogue related to the following research areas: Literary Studies (literary theory and literary history of a number of cultures and languages including Poland, England, Russia, Germany among others), Linguistics (general linguistics, comparative linguistics, cognitive linguistics) and Logopaedics. 

Our research within the field of literary studies is largely interdisciplinary and comparative. It includes literary history, history of ideas and forms (ranging from the Middle Ages to contemporary times), with a special focus on Cultural Studies and globalisation. We are also interested in offering new comparative readings of English and Polish literature, literature of cultural frontiers as well as spiritual literature. Other areas of our academic inquiry enter the domain of the avant-garde inclinations present in the 20th- and 21st-century literature but also include research related to creative work of women and the idea of feminity (Women Studies). Furthermore, we are keen to explore and identify the apparent connection existing between literature and law, literature and the history of art and literature and sociology. Among other, equally solid academic backgrounds, we also have a strong team of researchers active in the field of didactics of the Polish language explored from a combined perspective of history and applied social sciences.  

We are also committed to pursuing research in the field of literary theory (i.e. anthropology and semiotics of a literary work, cultural and historical literary concepts), comparative literary studies and cultural studies with strong reference to English, German and Russian. 

Research within linguistics (including logopaedics) focuses on Slavic languages and English. It adopts a selection of research paradigms from the field of comparative linguistics (e.g., confrontative word-formation with primary reference to Polish, Russian and Czech). Our linguists are also interested in exploring the key concepts from the field of semiotics as well as second language acquisition. Other areas we specialise in range from rhetorics, confrontative linguistics, speech development and speech disorders to methodological aspects of language programming in speech therapy, language competence and communicative competence of people suffering from hearing impairment and with literacy difficulties. Finally, we are no strangers to the language of archival sources (speech acts, genres, discourse) and the concept of the linguistic picture of the world.
