Belarus News: Belarusian State University to host online conference on cultural heritage. “The online discussions will bring together around 40 scientists, teachers, postgraduate students, and researchers from Belarus, Russia, Ukraine, Poland, Turkmenistan, the United States, the United Kingdom, and India. They will discuss matters related to Oriental studies, classical and medieval studies of Belarus, cultural heritage, history, and religion of the East in ancient and medieval times in the historical memory of the Belarusian nation and share results of research in this field. Following the conference, the BSU will publish a collection of reports from the conference in its Digital Library.”
The Belarusian State University has launched a digital archive of photographs. (The press release is in Russian but Google Translate does a decent job with it.) Also from the press release, also translated from Russian: “‘Today, in the digital photo archive of more than 20,000 photos, 700 collections. Most of the events in the photos recovered by the newspaper “Unіversіtet”, which is published at BSU since 1929. The pre-war BSU pictures and information about them is given the staff and the Faculty of History , BSU History Museum’- adds Pavel Solovyov.” Pavel Solovyov is head of BSU’s media center. A much briefer story, without a link to the archives, is available here. It’s in English. Big shoutout to Petravets Larisa at BSU for so quickly responding to my e-mail!
