PetrSU Lecturers Participate in Seminars on British Literature
In April, Nadezhda Shablikova, Associate Professor, alongside with Nadezhda Proskuryakova and Svetlana Filon, senior lecturers of the Department of English language, Institute of Foreign Languages, PetrSU, took part in online seminars on modern British literature.
For more than 10 years, Karen Hewitt, a lecturer at Oxford University, has been conducting such seminars for teachers of Russian universities.
The topic of this year’s meeting was the metaphor in three novels: Stone Trees (1983) by Jane Gardam, Foreigner (2010) by Christopher Burns and The Assassination of Margaret Thatcher (2014) by Hilary Mantel.
The discussion was vivid thanks to the problems raised in literature that are relevant till the present days.
