quarterly webinar

Kashubia & Kashubians
Sunday, May 15, 2022, 2-4 pm Central Time

In cooperation with the Polish Cultural Institute & Museum in Winona, MN, the “Kashubian Capital of America”, Joseph Hughes will present on the Kashubian region of Poland, its culture, what makes Kashubians different from other Poles, why they left for America, and what brought them to Minnesota and the upper Midwest where Kashubian customs survived for more than a century and a half years leading to a strong revival in the 1970s.

Dr. Joseph Hughes is professor emeritus of Classical Languages at Missouri State University in Springfield, Missouri.  He now lives in the hometown of his parents, Winona, Minnesota, where he is working on a book about his mother’s Kashubian-Polish ancestors and their lives in the upper Midwest.  He has presented his research on Kashubian Poles in America on numerous occasions in the United States and in Poland.
