We hope you will join us in Faulconer Gallery on Tuesday, March 12th, at 4:15, for a talk presented by Professor Ed Cohn of the department of history. Ed’s talk is inspired by the pictures of Chernobyl, which are part of the current exhibit of Robert Polidori’s art in the gallery. http://www.grinnell.edu/faulconergallery/exhibitions/polidori
Русский дом! Live in Russian House next year!
Are you interested in living off-campus next year? Would you like to live in a Russian-language environment, and participate in Russian activities? Join fellow Russian enthusiasts in Russian House, which is located at 1217 Park Street. There are singles and doubles available, as well as a full kitchen (кухня), a lounge area with television (телевизор), and various activities (мероприятия), including the now famous Russian Tea Party (Чаепитие) and Maslenitsa (Масленица) celebration.
Interested? Please contact the Russian House Coordinator at [russia] or [squierch] and/or Todd Armstrong at [armstron].
Just include your name, year, involvement in Russian (major or intended major? native speaker? taking classes?) and any extra information that may be important (going abroad for a semester, for example).
Grinnellians will be interested in reading about the adventures of one of last year’s graduates, Jared Dye ’12, who is spending the year in Russia, where he is teaching English in Tyumen, a city in Siberia. Jared, along with Kristen Moreland ’12, received a prestigious Fulbright award. Jared’s blog can be found here: http://jaredsfulbrightinsiberia.blogspot.ru.
