Wacław Sieroszewski was a 19th-century Polish exile, who in Yakutia undertook scientific and exploratory activities, the culmination of which was the creation of one of the most important monographs on the life and customs of the Yakut “12 years in the country of the Yakut”. Currently, he is recognized by this Siberian Nation as a hero who discovered them for the world and contributed to the preservation of their culture, tradition and history. On April 20, 2021 75 years will have passed since the death of this outstanding researcher and independence activist, who, after returning from exile to Russian Siberia, served as both a PM and senator of the Second Polish Republic. In connection with this anniversary, a series of scientific events will be organized, during which the latest results of research on the figure and achievements of W. Sieroszewski will be presented.
The first part of the project will be the Warsaw-Yakutsk online conference on October 20, 2020. The following conference is scheduled for March 2021 and will have an innovative seminar character resulting from its combination with scientific expeditions, the results of which will be presented at the end of the conference.
2021 – the second part of the project will take place in Yakutia.
