Ancient studies at the University of Warsaw are approached from a variety of disciplinary perspectives, with historians, orientalists, classicists, archaeologists, legal historians and philosophers forming prominent research clusters. It is the objective of the Centre for Research on Ancient Civilizations (CRAC) to better integrate this diverse milieu, foster its research and disseminate its research results and, in a long run, to make Warsaw one of the leading centres for the study on ancient civilizations. CRAC cherishes the diversity of the academic society. We seek to create a friendly and inclusive environment open to all scholars and students, irrespective of their ethnic background, religion, gender and gender identity, age and sexual orientation.

CRAC is currently run by Robert Wiśniewski, and an advisory board consisting of five members: Maria Nowak, Jan KwapiszMałgorzata Sandowicz, Dagmara Wielgosz-Rondolino and Mateusz Kusio. CRAC office is run by Justyna Kot. Please do not hesitate to contact one of them if you have any questions or ideas related to our activity.
