Back to school again!
Four TSU students including Aleksandra Nabiullina and Yuliya Alyunina attended the Oxford Russia Fund Summer School (24-29 July 2016) in Moscow (http://oxfordrussia.ru/). Russian scientists and researchers delivered lectures on mass media imposing their own opinion on people, modern art, film as a cognitive experiment and many others. The lectures were devoted to a wide range of issues, yet all of them were connected with social interaction and communication. The research and projects offered by the organising committee employed mapping as the main method of not only scientific studies but also students’ career prospects and professional development. The participants put their coordinates on their maps and moved towards them overcoming different obstacles and searching for solutions to such problems as global warming or selfie-making.
Alexandra and Yuliya appreciated the time spent at the school as they had a chance to see new perspective on applying their skills of young researchers.
