To Reason Russia from the Mind. An Original Summer School
on Russian Language and Culture in an Era of Change
by Igor Nemirovsky

Fedor Tiutchev, the renowned nineteenth-century Russian poet, defined his relationship to Russia as follows: “Russia cannot be reasoned from the mind / nor measured on a common scale.” Unfortunately, the realities of our time precludes us from the luxury of “not reasoning Russia from the mind.” We must strive towards this goal, and such is the objective of our summer school on Russian language and culture which will take place in the delightful atmosphere of Russophone Tallinn from June 10-July 19, 2024.

What we offer:
– 120 in-class hours of Russian language
– Series of lectures devoted to the current political and cultural development of Russia by prominent scholars in the area – mini courses are taught both in Russian and English
– Excursions in Tallinn, and trips to Helsinki and Riga
– Credits may be arranged via colleges individually   
– 6 weeks in beautiful and friendly Tallinn

Place: Tallinn, Estonia
When: June 10 – July 19, 2024
Registration deadline: May 1st, 2024
