On June 19 a student of the Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures of Princeton University (USA), Jake Robertson arrived at Ukhta State Technical University to collect materials for his thesis.
The American student has already visited Russia and undertook language internship in Moscow and St. Petersburg. A year later, Robertson will defend his thesis "Theatre of the Gulag." The student chose this topic during his first year at the Princeton University. The researcher’s interest in history of camp theater brought him to the Komi Republic.
