NVU Professor’s Academic Articles Published in Poland and China

Two articles written by NVU Professor of History Alexandre Strokanov have recently been translated and published in academic journals in Poland and China. Both articles were based on his presentations at international conferences in those countries during 2021.

The first, titled “Yuryatin and Varykino: their prototypes and the mystery of names,” co-authored with Elena Strokanov, was published in the Chinese journal Russian Literature and Arts (2021) volume 3. The article is based on his presentation at Zhejiang University International conference in Hangzhou, China, which was devoted to Nobel Prize winner in Literature Boris Pasternak.

The second, titled “The New Face of the Museum: How the Museum of the Great Patriotic War (Victory Museum) in Moscow was Transformed Before the Celebration of the 75th Anniversary of the Victory,” was published in Studia Polityczne (2021) 49(2). The article is based on his presentation at the Institute of Political Studies of the Polish Academy of Sciences conference in Warsaw, Poland.

Professor Strokanov will also present at two upcoming conferences. The first will be at the 58th annual meeting of the Southern Conference on Slavic Studies February 24-26 at the University of Richmond, VA, where he will present as part of a panel discussion on the “Primary Sources in Teaching Histories of the Russian Revolutions.” The second will be at the VI International Scientific Conference “Language in the Coordinates of the Mass Media” in St. Petersburg, June 30-July 2, where he will present on “The language of ideological confrontation in the modern media: the boundaries of what is permissible.”
