Kazan State University Centre for the Sociology of Culture
Centre for the Sociology of Culture at the Kazan State University was established in January 1996 at the start of a large-scale joint European project entitled "Development of Teaching in Social Theory and the Sociology of Culture" (EU Tempus-Tacis scheme).

It has conducted a number of educational projects having developed new courses in social sciences, published over a dozen of books and implemented a vast academic exchange programme with EU universities. It has a unique library of international sources in sociology and related areas, and a computer class.

Being based at KSU, the Centre enjoys the atmosphere of both tradition and innovation. Since 1997 CSC has been associated with the KSU’s Laboratory for the Sociology of Culture which contributes to its research projects. Since 2000 the Centre has been providing its premises for the Organization of Social Sciences Teachers.

The Centre’s mission is to promote the idea of culturally charged social theory as the core of innovative development of social sciences. Our understanding of the place and role of the sociology of culture is that this is not just an institutionally delimitated area of sociological enquiry, but a whole new field of cultural analysis of various social institutions and practices. CSC is active in advocating horizontal links between students of society and culture both internationally and nationally. It aims at the profound renewal of both teaching contents and methods in the respective area.
