Cycle of Conferences “Russia: Past and Present”

IE Humanities Center is glad to announce that during the Spring Semester will organize a cycle of conferences entitled “Russia: Past and Present” directed by Humanities Professor Susana Torres [1] and hosted by IE University.

Recent events have underlined the relevance of Russia in global politics and economy. The present seminar aims at presenting to students and members of the academic community several aspects of the recent past and current reality of Europe’s biggest neighbour. Likewise, the cycle aims at transcending traditional borders of academic disciplines, since it is understood as a mosaic of interrelated topics that will provide the students with a deeper understanding of past events and future challenges in this part of the world.
