“Judging by the Cover: What we can learn from Russian Books”

October 6, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

“Judging by the Cover: What we can learn from Russian Books”

Wednesday, October 6, 3pm in Davis 246

What we can learn about Russia from looking at Russian books with Kirill Tolpygo, Slavic & East European Librarian, Davis Library. We will explore seemingly superficial elements of Russian publications such as production values, print runs, and age marking to see what they can reveal about the relationship of government and society in Russia and the role of print culture in the life of the country. This is not a lecture! Get ready to get your hands dirty and handle some Russian books. Participants will examine a variety of Russian publications, ask questions, and look for answers together.

Because this is an in-person event, we have limited number of spots. The spots are first come, first served, so please register as soon as possible. Register here.
