To celebrate the Universal Day of Culture on April 15, you are invited to join us in a virtual discussion with William Craft Brumfield, world renown American historian of Russian architecture, a preservationist and an architectural photographer. The discussion will be held on Thursday, April 15, at 18:00 Moscow time on the Facebook pages of the U.S. Embassy and American Center in Moscow. The discussion will be held in Russian.
Dr. Brumfield was awarded the D. S. Likhachev Prize by the D. S. Likhachev Foundation in 2014 for his outstanding contributions to the preservation of the historical and cultural heritage of Russia. In 2019, he was awarded the Order of Friendship, presented by Russian Ambassador to the United States Anatoly Antonov, “for the merits in strengthening friendship and cooperation between peoples, fruitful activities for the rapprochement and mutual enrichment of cultures of nations and nationalities.”
During the discussion with Dr. Brumfield and moderator Nadya Azhgikhina, learn about Dr. Brumfield’s most recent book, Journeys Through the Russian Empire: The Photographic Legacy of Sergey Prokudin-Gorsky, and his experiences documenting the history and architecture of Russia since his first visit to the former Soviet Union in 1970. He has lived in the former Soviet Union and Russia cumulatively for 15 years. He is currently Professor of Slavic studies at Tulane University, and his photograph collections are housed at the U.S. Library of Congress and the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC.
