The Philological Research Group “BESTO” was established as an evolutionary form of “Eccocentrics,” which was a student interest group founded by dr hab. Marzena Kubisz in 2011. This informal group organized academic meetings and discussions, and initiated a tradition of organizing a second-hand book fair at the Faculty of Philology in Sosnowiec. The obtained money is given to animal welfare foundations. In 2014, the group Eccocentrics changed its character and transformed into the Philological Research Group BESTO. The group consists of the employees of the Faculty of Philology of the University of Silesia in Katowice who work at the Institute of English Cultures and Literatures, the Institute of English, the Institute of Romance Languages and Translation, the College of Foreign Languages at the Silesian University of Technology, and Foreign Languages Center of the Medical University of Silesia (Polish abbreviations IKiLA, IJRiT, KJOPŚ, SUM, respectively).
