Saint Tikhon's University Represented at International Academic Conference in Yerevan
On October 3, 2018, senior lecturers from the Faculty of Philology of Saint Tikhon´s Orthodox University of the Humanities gave talks at an international academic and practical conference on “Alexander Solzhenitsyn: Russian and National Literatures”.

This academic forum has been held in Armenia for many years and has the all-encompassing title of “Russian Classics: Russian and National Literatures”. Each year, the centre of attention for researchers is one classic Russian author. Thus, from 2009-2018, conferences have been held in Yerevan on Nikolai Gogol, Anton Chekhov, Lev Tolstoy, Mihail Lermontov, Nikolai Nekrasov, Alexander Pushkin, Mihail Bulgakov, and others. The “classic Russian author” for the 2019 forum in Yerevan has already been named: Anna Akhmatova.

The sessions were opened with welcome addresses by the President of the Republic of Armenia, Armen Sarkissian, and the President of the Armenian Writer´s Union, Edward Militonyan, as well as by the Rector of Valery Briusov State University of Yerevan. Next, the over 50 participants from various universities and research institutes from across Russia, Armenia, Georgia, Italy, Japan, Lithuania, Uzbekistan, and Slovakia spent three days discussing the main issues relating to the literary output of Alexander Slozhenitsyn.

On the first day of the conference, the senior lecturers Andrei Korovin and Irina Melentiev from Saint Tikhon´s Orthodox University of the Humanities gave papers on “Alexander Solzhenitskyn and the Nobel Format” and “The Poetry of the Popular Calendar in Solzhenitsyn´s Story A Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovitch”, respectively.

The conference was accompanied by a very full programme of cultural activities. The attendees visited the Memorial to the Armenian Genocide, the Sergei Parajanov Museum, the “Holy City” of Etchmiadzin, the Zvartnots Cathedral (“The Church of the Watchful Angels”), the ancient pagan temple in Garni that was restored from a ruinous state in the 20th century, and the 8th-century Geghard cave and monastery complex.
