The start of a new academic year is an excellent time to plan the next steps in your academic career. On September 1, HSE University announced the start of its annual Student Research Paper Competition (SRPC-2022). Participation is open to students of Russian and international universities and to 2022 graduates. Last year, a total of 2,196 papers were submitted to the SRPC, of which 435 were from external participants.
A year ago, when we were all just starting our lives in Zoom, MsTeams and other wonderful virtual places, it seemed as if one of our biggest problems was organising practical tasks and projects. However, what we feared did not come true: on the contrary, it turned out that the virtual world is simply waiting to be conquered by philologists.
At the end of August, second – year students of the educational program “Philology” visited the next expedition. This time they were in the village of Bykovka in Vorotynsky district. This is the ancestral home of one of the wealthiest families of Imperial Russia.
