The Other: nationalities, religions, genders – intercultural workshops for secondary school students
On January 11, 2017 within our intercultural workshops we had again a pleasure to host students from the secondary school in Prudnik. The fourth meeting of this cycle was begun by Professor Marek Szczepański, who delivered a short lecture on the beginnings of Sociology and its main trends.
To deepen the understanding of the students’ attitudes to foreign cultures, we asked them to fill in a short questionnaire. The analysis of the collected material will allow us to better tailor our work to the needs of young people.
During the workshop UO students from Afghanistan, Greece, Indonesia and Turkey talked about their countries and answered difficult questions. The meeting ended with a joint discussion, led by Dr. Michał Wanke. We were discussing the possibilities of the arrival of the Other to Poland and their adoption of our culture, the role of the different religions in the world today, and gender inequalities on the example of the essential similarities between the situation in Afghanistan and in Poland.
