Inaugural Session of Share Language, Culture, Life (Crossroads Eurasia)

Event Date: October 25, 2020

Join a conversation with your Russian peers

Please join us for the inaugural session of Share Language, Culture, Life – a new series of moderated online conversations through which you can learn what your Russian peers think on current cultural topics.  

In our first session, we will talk about Russian social media influencers – who they are, how they relate to their audiences, and how they are similar or different to those popular in the West. We will hear the perspective from students in Russia about how they and their friends relate to influencers and compare experiences between the West and Russia.

The conversation will take place on Sunday, October 25, 2020 at noon (U.S. East Coast time).

To prepare for the discussion, we will ask everyone participating to read the following two articles (in Russian):

– Русский TikTok: что снимают и сколько зарабатывают отечественные микровидеоблогеры
– «Баба-слесарь и человек-жиза»: как блогеры «из народа» набирают миллионы просмотров и зарабатывают десятки тысяч рублей в TikTok

The conversation itself will be in English. It will last about an hour, and it will take place via Zoom or similar online video conferencing tool. You will receive call details closer to the call date. Participation is free and requires no long term commitment.
