Brazilian student Vicente Giaссaglini Ferraro has been interested in Russia since childhood, when he started learning Russian on his own. He is now studying in the Higher School of Economics’ Applied Politics master’s programme. In an interview with the HSE News Service, Vicente discusses what drew him towards Russia, why he chose HSE, and why he is happy when it is cold.
A group from Brazil’s Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais visited the HSE to participate in a seminar that was part of the ‘Russia-Brazil Major Sport Events: Social Commotion in Global Media’ joint project.
On January 17, 2014, Elena Vasina, Director of the Translation Centre at the University of Sao Paulo will read a lecture on ‘Brazil: Politics, Culture, Language’ at the HSE in Nizhny Novgorod. The lecture is happening as part of the cooperation agreement between the two universities, signed in October 2013.
