Exhibit, "Russia Inside Out: Voices and Faces" in Knight Library
An exhibit titled “Russia Inside Out: Voices and Faces” is on display in front of the Knight Library Browsing Room.
The exhibit features books about the Russian language, as well as a cookbook “accordion” with various ethnic dishes that were popularized and discovered via the Russian language in the former Soviet Union.
A special map indicates the diversity of ethnicities in 21st-century Russia, where many ethnic peoples had settled long before the Slavs. Images of national costumes are featured for some of the representatives from 185 ethnic groups living in Russia.
The exhibit was curated by Heghine Hakobyan, Slavic librarian.
