Celebrated Russian Authors interact with Amity University Students at Kolkata

Celebrated Russian author Alisa Arkadyevna Ganieva and other eminent scholars visit AUK Campus and share their experiences & views on literature & contemporary issues.
As the city’s temperature keeps on soaring high, with Russia being the theme country for the 44th International Kolkata Book Fair, Amity Institute of English Studies and Research, with an enthusiastic assistance of the admissions team, Amity University Kolkata today witnessed a powerful interactive session with delegates from Russia for an enriching session.

The event is scheduled from 4th to 7th February 2020, comprising book launch and interactive sessions that aim to channelize new waves of cultural exchange between the two countries.

The 4th February session had eminent guests including Mr Mikhail Gusev, the Deputy Consulate General of Kolkata, Mr. Eugene Reznichenko, the Director of the Institute for Literary Translation, Moscow, and Ms Alisa Arkadyevna Ganieva, the celebrated Russian author of novels, short poems and radio plays, who spoke at large about literature, creative writing and the past, present and future of Feminism in the Eastern sphere.

The event started with blessings from the founder president, the Chancellor and other dignitaries. Shortly after the felicitation, there was an interactive session encompassing the author, students and the faculty. On this valuable knowledge sharing initiative, Pro-Vice Chancellor, Amity University, Kolkata, Prof. (Dr.) Ankita Chakravarty, said “Knowledge & Experience sharing is an important aspect of learning and teaching at Amity University Kolkata. Kolkata Book Fair is having Russia as Theme Country this year, and so we have arranged the visit of celebrated Russian intellectuals and authors to interact with our students. Certainly this interaction is going to ignite young minds and give them a new perspective on contemporary issues.”

This was shortly followed by a vote of thanks to the delegates and the program came to an end with question-answers and insights on new literary narratives.

Students were happy to attend the sessions and are eagerly waiting for more such sessions which have been lined up this week.
