Vepsian Summer and Autumn Traditions
A lecture devoted to Vepsian summer and autumn traditions was held online via Zoom.
The meeting was organized by the representatives of the Karelian union "Vepsan vezad" and students of the Department of Baltic and Finnish Philology Tatiana Martyanova and Daniil Balandin.
The participants learned about the summer-autumn festive traditions as well as their history.
Students, teachers, and graduates of the Department of Baltic and Finnish Philology joined the meeting discussion. The discussions were followed by a question-and-answer session where participants talked about the relationships between traditions and modernity.
«Such meetings facilitate the popularization of Karelian indigenous culture and history, raise the level of consciousness as well as bring together the students of the Department of Baltic and Finnish Philology», said the meeting organizers.
