ETHIOPIA SEEN FROM WARSAW IN THE 19TH AND 20TH CENT. [Abstract ID: 0509-07]
The reminiscence of Polish reception of Ethiopia in the two past centuries would not be complete without mentioning a large African context and especially the whole north-eastern part of Africa, with a particular focus on the Middle Nile Valley, which was the Ethiopia of ancient Greeks and Romans. We do not intend to give a complete account of Polish scholarship, literature and press articles concerning Ethiopia. Even a concise description would certainly be too abundant for a conference paper. However, the speaker will try to produce a general overview of the approach of Poles to the remote and interesting African empire.
