Event Description:
The Russian Program invites all students, faculty, and staff to attend the Russian conversation table "The Nose," which meets every other Wednesday from 5 pm to 6 pm at "The Hill Coffee Co." in the Union. These are the dates for this semester's gatherings: January 15, February 5, February 19, March 11, March 18, and April 8.
This is an informal gathering for all who are currently studying Russian, have lived in a Russian speaking country, or have an interest in learning about the language and everyday lives of Russians in Russian speaking countries and abroad. During the gatherings, we play games in Russian such as Monopoly, Mafia, Scrabble, Memory, and practice speaking on everyday topics.
The gathering takes its name from Nikolay Gogol's story "The Nose," which describes an officer who wakes up one morning without his nose. The officer chases the nose through St. Petersburg, but the nose refuses to recognize its owner because it possesses a much higher rank than the owner. You can read it here: http://www.yorku.ca/creet/satire/documents/thenose.pdf If you want to learn more about the Russian language and literature courses, please email the head of the Russian program, Prof. Berkovich at nadezdab@uark.edu
