Hey guys: an idea - let's start up this community
Reasons: 1. we have a lot of international students at the university
we don't use their knowledge and experience in full capacity :)
2. we have a lot of students studying different regions and their culture
3. we are a multicultural society !
4. i feel nostalgic to the cosmoclubs of the american universities :))
The way it is going to work: each month is meant to be devoted to one region/country: 1. you can poster the walls (TBD) with pictures and posters of the culture you represent or want people to learn more about
2. and make a presentation of your culture/country/region at some evening that month. Presentation can be of any kind - PowerPoint, dancing, singing, a performance, etc. whatever you may think of (but keep in mind the rules of the university, limited technical support, moral rules :)) If you want your presentation being accompanied by snacks and refreshments of your culture that's cool too - but you organize it yourselves :)
3. if you are interested in making such a presentation - come and talk to me - Polina M. Golovatina /office of the chair of foreign languages of our faculty/ or someone else responsible
4. if you want to be one of the organizers - i will be more than happy to see you - urgently need volunteers :)

and in conclusion - sign up!
foreign students! - are especially encouraged to participate

Andrei, you are not here anyway - well, when i was in such a club while studying in the states we all considered ourselves special because we were in the club
but seriously it's open to everyone interested
i just guess that if it starts working there again are going to be the same group of people :) who is going to all the clubs intiated by me :))

response to the second remark - no! it has nothing to do with the magazine! the word cosmopolitan is just widespread :)

I'd like it to be so but as we are both here - it just can't be. If it is possible to participate in it through the internet - i'd like to do some staff(powerpoint presentation or some other) to show a bit of Chine.

Andrei that would be interesting !
I am actually glad you are studying somewhere else but as we discussed that with Prof. Liamzin already it's sad that you - one of our most active students - is out
Stay in touch with Cosmo Club and we'll be glad to see your contribution at the China evening

Irina, if it's not a problem for u... we had to shift the US presentation to December because the Am Information Center got interested and suggested to have the presentation there
as a result November session was open... I was not sure if you would agree to shift Korean presentation to November and asked Katia to make a presentation of Italy ... if you don't mind we can have Korea in February
But what about Korean movies?

#
Avatar for irina спустя 3 дня (5 ноября 2006)

There is no problem with movies, but Korean students who want to participate are going home after this semester (at least one of them), so shifting the presentation to February is not convenient for us (even though new students will be coming then, we will not have enough time to fully involve them...) Is that really big problem if we also present in December?

I suggest the end of March.
I guess it also dpends on what exactly we are going to arrange. A simple meeting could be arranged next week.
Something more complicated (and interesting) like an excursion or a tea ceremony - perhaps in a week or two because it will take a lot of time to inform everybody and raise money if we have to.
In our city ther is also a club of people who play the asian game of GO. I could arrange for them to come and teach us how to play and perhaps make a sort of GO contest if the Cosmopolitan club members are interested.
