UK Libraries 'Reimagine Russia's Realms' in Lecture, Exhibits

In celebration of University of Kentucky College of Arts and Sciences' year-long exploration into the culture and history of Russia, UK Libraries continues "Reimagining Russia's Realms" throughout the spring semester with new exhibits and programming: an audiology seminar and a display of rare postcards and posters from Soviet and pre-Soviet era Russia.

Cynthia Ruder and Karen Petrone on WRFL

Karen Petrone and Cindy Ruder (from History and MCL, respectively) are two of the A&S faculty members behind this year’s Passport to the World initiative – Reimagining Russia’s Realms. They stopped by the studios of UK’s student-run radio station, WRFL 88.1 FM, to talk to host Mick Jeffries on his show, Trivial Thursdays. They discussed the final installment of the Animated Film Series focusing on the Perestroika Period of the 1980s. The discussion also covered a number of other events and programs involved in this year’s initiative and, of course, all things Russian.
