The HSE Look - March 2019 issue
The 41st issue of The HSE Look is devoted to teaching and to introducing several of HSE’s postdocs. The issue begins with the highlights of the study on international classroom. Jan Surman and Vera Smirnova speak about their research interests and about the ways they involve students in research. Iain Ferguson tells how his three years at HSE have helped his research in international relations, and in this issue’s column ‘Discovering HSE and Russia’ Mahama Tawat invites the readers on a journey through the world of Afro-Latin dancing in Moscow.

The HSE Look No. 3 (38), July 2018 – Local Deeds, Global Thinking

Geography of HSE University provides ample opportunities to experience and learn about nearly half of the country, and without understanding each of the campuses with their unique features there is no way to fully understand the idea of HSE on the whole. Last year The HSE Look began a series of articles focusing in-depth on each campus, starting with HSE St. Petersburg (see October 2017 issue), university’s 2nd largest campus, and we would like to continue the series with devoting the summer issue to HSE Nizhniy Novgorod. While being unmistakably a part of HSE University, each campus reflects the unique features of its region, and the readers can learn more about it in an interview with campus Director Valery Zusman. In this issue we also talk more about education programmes at HSE Nizhniy Novgorod with Deputy Director Anna Blyakhman, get an inside look into the work of the Laboratory of Algorithms and Technologies for Networks Analysis with its head Valery Kalyagin, and travel to discover different Russias with Victor Albert, one of HSE’s international faculty members.
