University Customs: Ermines, Regalia and Student Induction Pranks

On 7 April 2017, Dr Wiktor Szymborski of the JU Institute of History delivered a lecture on “University Customs: Ermines, Regalia and Student Induction Pranks” at the Jagiellonian University Collegium Maius Museum.
The lecture focused on selected aspects related to university life, primarily the daily life of students struggling not just with difficult subjects, but also their senior fellow students staging peculiar induction pranks. The history of promotion and university ceremonials was discussed as well as broadly understood student entertainment.
The tactile adaptations of the graphics and the painting were made by Lech Kolasiński, a painting artist.
