Prof. Dr. Piotr H. Kosicki

specializes in the transnational history of modern and contemporary Europe and its global entanglements. He is Associate Professor of History at the University of Maryland, College Park, and Adjunct Professor of History at McGill University. His early work focused on Catholic intellectual exchanges and political partnerships between France and Poland; this research yielded Catholics on the Barricades: Poland, France, and “Revolution,” 1891-1956 (Yale, 2018) as well as Personalizm po polsku: Francuskie korzenie polskiej inteligencji katolickiej (2016), in addition to peer-reviewed articles in Contemporary European HistoryModern Intellectual HistorySlavic Review, and Vingtième Siecle. Revue d’histoire. After curating a project focused on the Second Vatican Council’s impact on Eastern Europe (Vatican II behind the Iron Curtain, 2016) and another concerning historical memory of the Katyń Massacres of 1940, Kosicki’s research has followed 3 parallel tracks: the global history of Christian Democracy, Catholics’ role in the refashioning of European memory & historiography after World War II, and the history of apocalyptic thought. He is currently at work on a book entitled A New Kind of Progressive: How Poles, Venezuelans, and Germans Re-imagined Latin America. Piotr H. Kosicki also contributes frequently to journals of public opinion, including Commonweal, the Times Literary Supplement, and the Washington Post.
