The Research Group of Comparative Studies of Civilisations has operated from the second half of the 2005/2006 academic year and was registered in June, 2006. It comprises about twenty students connected with the Centre for Comparative Studies of Civilisations. We concentrate on a broadly defined conception of the world's cultures, particularly the ones which are faraway – in space and in ideological terms also. Our members are interested in aspects of other cultures that involve their identity: religion, language, mentality, world outlook and, as a consequence, their rituals and lifestyles. Our main point is to broaden our knowledge of various aspects of the world's cultures and disseminate it to a wider audience. These aims are archived through a variety of activities such as conferences, scientific panel discussions, slide shows and meetings with interesting people. Our members have interdisciplinary interests which allow us to implement our policies in eventful and maverick projects. We collaborate with many other Academic Clubs as well as international student organisations (ELSA- Krakow, AEGEE-Krakow). We work under the great care and discreet supervision of our tutors, Dr Grażyna Bąkowska-Czerner and Dr Wojciech Kosior.
