Vestnik was launched by SRAS in 2004 as one of the world’s first online academic journals focused on showcasing student research. We welcome and invite papers written by undergraduates, graduates, and postgraduates. Research on any subject related to the broad geographic area outlined above is accepted. If you have written solid research eligible for publication according to the guidelines listed here, please submit it.
This first issue features diverse papers and writings. Many focus on Russian art and literature. “Blood Imagery in Crime and Punishment” and “Similarities between Crime and Punishment and Brothers Karamazov” provide insights into Dostoevsky’s literary classics. “Sancta” explores a series of paintings by Russian artist Nicholas Roerich. “The Government Inspector in Text and Presentation” presents a critical history of Gogol’s play while “Strange Enforcement” examines censorship organs of Soviet stage.
In addition, we have included an article addressing the political aspects of Russian journalism: “Russian Media and Democracy” and a sampling of the insightful Ukraine-centered creative writings of Suchorita Rudra-Vasquez.
