Prominent critics and scholars will teach sessions of the month-long course.

Educational Division at the Moscow Department of Culture is introducing a month-long lecture series in English aimed at foreign residents of the Russian capital. Entitled “Exploring Russian Culture,” the program is for those who want to immerse themselves in Russia’s strong tradition of cultural excellence. Each lecture will focus on one area — such as literature, theater, music, cinema and etiquette — and will be given by a top-ranking expert in the particular field.

Twelve lectures by Moscow’s most prominent creative minds will take place from Nov. 14-Dec.14. The speakers include: literary critic Konstantin Milchin, director of the Moscow Design Museum Alexandra Sankova, Academic Leader and Associate Professor in Cultural Studies at the Higher School of Economics Olga Roginskaya, and many more.

The complete list of lecturers and schedule is available here.

UPD on Nov. 10: Previously we wrote about the cost of the course, but according the new information from the organizers, the course will be free for expats. 

Applications are available here.
