Summary/Abstract: When did Schulz’s presence in the Gdańsk humanities discourse become permanent and programme-like, if it may be described as such? Much seems to indicate that this took place in 2012 – the year of the publication by Stanisław Rosiek of an article-manifesto in the first issue of “Schulz/Forum”. The postulates outlined therein assume work conducted on three mutually supplementing levels, which should result in: (1) the emergence of a periodical dedicated to the person and works of Schulz, (2) the publication of a critical edition of Dzieła zebrane, and (3) a further reconstruction of the writer’s autobiography. The presented note is an attempt at a summary of some of the outcomes of this undertaking. Seven years later, the planned research and publishing tasks are still being pursued although it has proved possible for some to be already distinctly advanced. They include primarily: (1) the semi-annual “Schulz/Forum”, which fulfils the function of a platform-meeting place of both Polish and foreign researchers and readers of Sklepy cynamonowe (The Cinnamon Shops), (2) three of the nine prepared volumes of a critical edition of Dzieła zebrane, and (3) an Internet timeline of the life, works, and reception of Bruno Schulz, published in Polish, Ukrainian, and English – www.schulzforum.pl.
