Russian Club Presents “Siberian Voices”
February 28, 2014
When: March 5th, from 5:30 - 6:45
Where: San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts
“Siberian Voices” will explore the peoples and cultures, as well dramatic landscape, of South- Central Siberia. Speakers will share their own expertise and experiences on a summer 2013 travel-seminar through the region that began in Kyzyl, proceeding to Irkutsk, Lake Baikal, and finally Ulan Ude, skirting the Russian-Mongolian border—along the Trans-Siberian railroad. Through pictures, maps, and personal stories speakers will describe the rich history and geography of this fascinating cultural borderland, layered with various indigenous, as well as Russian, Mongolian, Chinese, Turkic, and Tibetan influences.
