The goal behind these activities is to increase awareness as to the consolidation of Catalan studies in Poland. This year, there are 110 Polish students studying Catalan: 71 in Poznan, 21 in Warsaw and 18 in Krakow. The lector at Adam Mickiewicz University, Alfons Gregori, will teach six Catalan courses, while the lectors of Jagellons University (Krakow) and Varsovia, Guillem Caladorra and Josep Antoni Clement, will offer three.
Joan Francesc Mira's lectures follow those held a month ago, in the very same auditoriums, by the essayist, literary critic and university professor, Enric Sòria, which also dealt with Catalan literature.
The Institut Ramon Llull has published a complementary booklet to provide context for the cultural activities offered at the Polish Universities, including a poem by Maria Merè Marçal and a short story by Carme Riera, both presented in Catalan with a Polish translation. These texts are accompanied by a brief explanation on the meaning of St. Jordi's Day celebrations and a description of Catalan language and culture.
