Celebration (l to r): Andrew Wheatcroft, Alan Thomson, Ann Shukman, Marilyn Elliott, Donald Smith and Elizabeth Roberts
Yesterday evening the organising committee of our Russian conference met in the early evening at Brodies to celebrate the great success of the event. We hope shortly to be posting conference papers, conference recording and many photographs on our website. Next steps include: a Memorandum of Understanding with our Russian partner, the All-Union State Library for Foreign Literature, Moscow; publication of bilingual editions; exchange of writers in residence; a translators conference and active participation in the upcoming UK Year of Russian Language and Culture Jan-Dec 2014.
