Andrea Gullotta From University of Glasgow Visited HSE-Perm
In mid-April Andrea Gullotta, professor of the University of Glasgow, came to Perm. Dr. Gullotta’s research interests are literature of GULAG prisoners and also the history and culture of Russia.
Dr. Gullotta visited HSE-Perm’s Department of Humanities where he got acquainted with colleagues from Perm and discussed his research interests which include the history and culture of Russia as well as the history of political prison camps. The researchers from the Department of Humanities also discussed the prospects of further collaboration with Dr. Gullotta. In his turn the professor expressed his willingness to come back to Perm with lectures.
The foreign professor also had a sight-seeing tour. He was shown the places of interest of Perm as well as the labour district of Motovilikha and the Art gallery, since Dr. Gullotta is interested in labour class culture. He was especially impressed by the collection of wooden sculpture in the Perm Art gallery.
