Przemysław Gawron (UKSW University, Warsaw) in conversation with
Kristoffer Schmidt (Museum Nordsjælland) and
Michael Bregnsbo (University of Southern Denmark).
In the late 18 th century, the political regimes throughout Europe were challenged by new ideas of liberty, equality and fraternity.
In Denmark, the enlightenment ideas were most radically implemented during Struensee’s short-lived reign, but even some years later Frederick VI carried out a number of progressive reforms in a firmly state-controlled process.
In Poland, the enlightenment ideas became associated with resistance against Russian oppression, most prominently expressed in the adoption of a constitution inspired by the French revolution, and in Tadeusz Kościuszko’s armed uprising nurtured by progressive ideas.
But where did the new ideas come from? Which ideological camps existed? Which similarities and differences can be observed between the countries? This and much more will be debated when three historians meet at Museum Nordsjælland and present their points of view.
As an introduction to the event, a short documentary film will be screened about Kościuszko and his legacy. A guided tour in the exhibition will be offered afterwards. The event is organised by the Embassy of Poland in cooperation with Museum Nordsjælland.
The event will be held in English.
After the event refreshments will be served.
