Saying Good Bye to Our Russian Collaborators (July 26)

Thank you, Masha!

Thank you, Nastia!

Our research projects would not be even remotely successful without our collaborators from the School of Journalism: Tamara Dedikova, Masha Nefedova, Arina Malikova, and Anastasia Vasilyeva.  At our farewell dinner we thanked them for their great job!  We will stay in touch with them in the fall semester during the post-production stage of our projects .  But for now we say: “See you soon!”

We held our farewell dinner at the restaurant called Russian Kitsch.  It is located on the University Embankment, the oldest waterfront of the city.  The interiors of the restaurant combine luxury with self-mockery: green marble, pompous gilded garlands of flowers, hand painted murals on the ceiling and epic canvases on the walls.  The interiors of the restaurant mock Soviet-era iconography and unbridled consumerism of the new rich.  For example, one of the ceiling murals depicts Castro and Brezhnev in Heaven kissing each other amidst their sycophantic minions 🙂
