A meeting with first-year students

On September 3rd, first-year bachelor and master students of anthropology along with other students already studying at TSU Department of History and postgraduate students and LSAR fellows.

All gathered at the Laboratory for Social and Anthropological Research, the purpose of the meeting being to familiarize the newly-enrolled students with the Laboratory and its activities and to give them a better idea of what anthropology is and what it actually deals with. Guests of the meeting were master student of social anthropology at the University of Vienna (Austria) David Steinacker who visited Siberia at the invitation of the Laboratory to conduct his field research here and researcher and anthropologist Christian Buechner who is currently teaching at Novosibirsk State University. The guests shared their experience in doing research on social anthropology and answered students’ questions.

Senior students, in turn, told about their field trips to Sakhalin, Kazakhstan, Bulgaria, and Belarus.

Everyone got carried away with the conversation and so the meeting lasted till late in the evening culminating in watching a student film about the summer school in Bulgaria.  After this gathering, as some of the students noted later on, the TSU programme in ‘Anthropology and Ethnology’, run at both bachelor and master level this year, has become even more interesting to them. What awaits them now is further exploration of anthropological knowledge. And we wish all the students a great year of study ahead!
