Frederik Edsberg from our Russian Studies program wrote an article on Latvia’s relation to its Soviet past and its neighbor, Russia.
Frederik is a BA student and is currently on exchange in Latvia. Due to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, our BA students from Russian Studies have had to find alternative ways to complete their semester abroad, where they focus improving their Russian language skills. Studying abroad in a former Soviet republic offers unique insights into the legacy of the Soviet Union, which the students might otherwise have been unaware of.
