Russia is one of the world’s largest countries in terms of land mass, but it may come as a surprise to learn that it is also one of the most diverse. Learn about Russia’s ethnic and religious minority groups, including their relationship to mainstream society in the Soviet and post-Soviet eras. By discussing works of literature by Siberian indigenous writers, as well as theater performances by Central Asian migrant workers, discover how the country’s most vulnerable voices can offer new and crucial perspectives on life in contemporary Russia.

Part of the Tucson Humanities Festival, a series of topical lectures, panel discussions and events presented by UA College of Humanities faculty and special guests. For more information, including the Festival schedule and presenters, go to Questions? Contact Helen Bernard at 520-626-4319.
