Dead Souls, Barge Haulers, and Onion Domes: Quizzing through the Slavic World

2:00pm-3:00pm on Saturday 27 March

Times shown are in GMT (UTC +0) up to the 27th March. For events on or after 28th March times are in BST (UTC +1).

This event features an interactive quiz format, whereby each question submitted to the audience triggers a mini-lecture from the expert in the relevant sub-field. The range of topics is as broad as the research strengths of the Section’s faculty and draw from film, literature, visual arts, architecture, and linguistics. We present a medley of curiosities from the Slavic sphere, spanning time (from Medieval to contemporary) and geography (Poland, Russia, and Ukraine are our particular areas of expertise). Though we do not intend to explore any specific question in depth, we hope to highlight some of the areas we are thinking and teaching about.

The event is mostly geared towards a younger audience, but everybody with interest in all things Slavonic is welcome. 

It is organized and delivered by the faculty of the Slavonic Section: https://www.mmll.cam.ac.uk/slavonic/people
