From the 24th to the 30th of October 2019, a group of fifteen students and three professors from the National Research University Higher School of Economics, had the opportunity to participate in an ethnological expedition to Vladimir. The reason that led the group of students to this city was the local clash of ideals – if not mentalities - related with its central museum. During six days, with the support of the members of Vladimir’s independent journal, Dovod (“Argument”), the group of students, under supervision of their professors, was responsible to interact with the local population, interviewing entities connected with the museum, social communication, and the regional educational institutions.
'Students in our program come from various backgrounds, and I have cultivated invaluable friendships in these two years of studying. We had studied together, lived together, and had a lot of fun together. I will always carry these memories with me on my future journey to come'. You Li, a graduate 2019 of Political Analysis and Public Policy, shares his study experience with us.
