Idesbald Goddeeris Talk

Francis Scott Key Hall, Room 2120
Thursday, March 27, 2014 - 12:30 PM to 2:00 PM

The Nathan and Jeanette Miller Center for Historical Studies invites you to a lunch talk with Professor Idesbald Goddeeris (University of Leuven) on Thursday March 27th from 12:30 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. in Francis Scott Key Hall, Room 2120 (The Merrill Room). 

To reserve lunch, please rsvp to millercentera@umd.edu

Idesbald Goddeeris’ recent monograph about the Polish communist secret services in Belgium made national headlines.  His book, Spioneren voor het communism:  Belgische prominenten en Poolse geheim agenten [Spying for Communism:  Polish Secret Agents and Belgian Important Personalities] (Lannoo Campus, 2013), revealed that a Belgian minister and a Polish opposition leader had worked for the Communists.  His tales of the secret services’ inefficiency and even absurdity were highlighted by the media.

Professor Goddeeris edited Solidarity with Solidarity:  Western European Trade Unions and the Polish Crisis, 1980-1982 (Lexington Books, 2010, paperback 2013) and wrote Spioneren voor het communisme. Belgische prominenten en Poolse geheim agenten (Spying for Communism. Polish Secret Agents and Belgian Important Personalities) (LannooCampus, 2013). He also contributed to, inter alia, Journal of Contemporary History (2015), Ethnicities (2014), and Journal of Cold War Studies (2011).
