Alfia Rakova Receives Research Travel Grant

My goal is to update our Russian language courses and explore the topic: the Role of Women in a Changing Russian Society and in the Multi-Ethnic Society of Tatarstan. My task during the trip is to obtain the latest and best films in Russian, stories, novels and media materials, and to videotape interviews with specialists on this topic in Russia. Since this is for our language classes, I will be searching for materials to improve students’ language skills in Russian.
My over-arching goal in this project is to make Russian-language learning as exciting and engaging as possible. And this larger goal can be achieved through good planning and identifying appropriate materials for our language courses here at Dartmouth College.
