The Faculty of Humanities was created on December 1, 2014. The Faculty trains instructors and researchers in the field of language and literature, as well as specialists in philosophy, history, and modern culture. The main goal of the Faculty is to teach students how to understand and analyze various cultural processes, employ current research strategies, and effectively put their knowledge into practice. Students in the Faculty are taught by leading Russian academics and practitioners from various cultural fields, as well as invited foreign specialists. Students receive a modern education in the humanities, as well as thorough language preparation, which allows them to find broad professional opportunities upon graduation. Students are given the opportunity to conduct research and receive practical experience at large private and public establishments.

I initially heard about this conference from my faculty lecturers and decided to give it a try. At the end of January, I received email confirmation that my paper had been accepted as a poster presentation. I applied to the HSE Academic Fund for financial support and received 20,000 roubles for travel expenses (flight to Berlin and train to Leipzig). I managed to spend much less than was allocated.
The conference took place at the University of Leipzig, and began with a lecture by Jürgen Erich Schmidt, a professor from the University of Marburg. The conference attracted a lot of participants (about 300 people), and four parallel sections were held at the same time, so I always had to choose. My poster presentation was on ‘Variation of Rhythmical Structure of Phonological Word in Standard Russian (Post-tonic vowels)’. During my poster presentation, I met many researchers, showed them my work and discussed it with them.
Another student of the HSE School of Linguistics, Vasilisa Zhigulskaya, gave a paper presentation on ‘A variation study of third person pronouns in prepositional constructions: a North Russian Dialect’. We were so anxious about her presentation that I even forgot to take any pictures!
In general, the conference was very intensive and left us only with positive impressions. I hope that I’ll have another chance to attend it in the future.
