Russia is not only the largest country in the world but also home to an impressive diversity of ethnic groups with distinct and unique cultures. During our time together, we’ll examine the lesser-known ethnicities of Russia, from its Iranian ethnic groups on the Southern border to circumpolar peoples of the Arctic circle.  

Adapting to their natural and social environments, these close-knit communities have created unique cultural artifacts, such as the multi-story towers of mountainous Ingushetia or the throat singing of the nomadic Kalmyks.  The seminar tells the stories of many unique ethnic groups and illuminates their distinct cultural heritage. 

Led by an expert on Russia's area and cultural studies, Nina Wieda, this course will capture our imagination with the stories of cultural ingenuity and adaptation from all over the Eurasian continent. Designed to inform curiosity as well as future travels, participants will come away with an increased appreciation for the diversity of social and cultural expression on the territory of modern Russia.

This conversation is part of a multi-part series on Eurasian Culture with Nina Wieda. Each session is designed to be enjoyed as a stand-alone seminar as well as part of the extended series.

Nina Wieda is a native of the Caucasus living in Chicago, USA. She holds a PhD in Slavic from Northwestern University and an MA in Nationalism Studies from Central European University. She worked as a newspaper journalist in the Caucasus and wrote her Master's thesis about the Northern Caucasus region. She teaches at Northwestern University near Chicago.

This conversation is suitable for all ages.

90 minutes, including a 30 minute Q&A.
