Associate Professor of History
As a Europeanist, Janusz Duzinkiewicz teaches the survey courses in European history and the history of Western thought and values.
Duzinkiewicz’s research is focused on the gente Ruthenus, natione Polonus (“of the Ruthenian people and the Polish nation”) phenomenon but will be returning to an earlier focus on the Four Years’ Parliament, 1788-1792 and the Polish Constitution of May 3, 1791.
