We are pleased to announce the LLC Lecture Series, which returns for one lecture this semester and four lectures in the spring. All lectures will be held on Mondays, 4-5pm, in person with a Zoom option, given in English and followed by a question and answer session. All are welcome.

On Monday, 29 November (the first day after fall break), Instructor of Russian and Geography Sayat Temirbekov will speak on the topic “The Russian Language in Post-Soviet Space: Kazakhstan and Others.” Sayat will discuss the Russian language in Kazakhstan and elsewhere beyond the borders of the Russian Federation: its historic spread, current status in post-Soviet republics, and economic, political, and cultural factors in developments in the Russian language today. Sayat also will discuss the personal significance of the Russian and Kazakh languages in his life experience.


As the Russian phrase goes, we wait with impatience for this event. We look forward to seeing many of you there, in person or virtually.
