Today, we will go for a walk in Kolomna and Vasilevsky Island with Nadezhda Nartova, an Academic Supervisor of the Master's programme 'Modern Social Analysis'. She looks at the city from the sociological point of view—through people, community and memory. Find out where in St Petersburg is the best place to feel oblivion, why the estate of Derzhavin at Fontanka is good and in which club you can listen to jazz in the interview.
Victoria Sharonova is a second-year student of the Master's programme 'Modern Social Analysis'. She is combining work and studies and recently moved to Italy under the double-degree programme between HSE University-St Petersburg and the University of Trento. In her interview, Victoria speaks about the admissions process, difficulties with accommodation and food, and the peculiarities of studying in Italy.
Vasily Khodakovskiy is a 2nd-year student of the Master's programme 'Modern Social Analysis'. During this time, he managed to go on a mobility programme to Italy. At the University of Trento, the student started studying the Italian language and had a chance to communicate with people from different European countries. The latter turned out to be especially interesting to Vasily, as it is important to him as a sociologist to immerse in another culture and meet new people. Find out how the student applied for the mobility programme, what Italy surprised him with and how the studies at the University of Trento are different from those at HSE University-St Petersburg in the interview.
On September 21, partial mobilisation was ordered in Russia. Vladimir Krotov, Head of the Military Registration Unit at HSE University, gave some explanations on this topic.
