Institute of Russian and Ukrainian Studies
The Institute conducts research in the fields of linguistics and literature.
With regard to the complex and changing nature of the present-day situation in Russia, pre-existing views concerning the literature and culture of the Russian language area are becoming outdated.
There is consequently a need for research work using modern techniques, aimed at revising established stereotypes and interpretations of facts, and seeking new solutions in pioneering fashion in the spirit of intercultural dialogue and communication.
The Institute also places emphasis on the intercultural aspects of the education of students taking courses in Russian, Russian and English, Russian and Ukrainian, and Russian with Applied Linguistics.
