Things You Shouldn't Have Learned at School: Life behind the Soviet Looking-Glass

Definition: Mr. Mikhail Palatnik, Washington University in St. Louis

A native Russian and faculty at Washington University, Palatnik will share and contextualize his experiences of trying to educate himself inside and outside the official Soviet school systems. He will discuss his own and others' efforts to evade the restrictions and censorship of the Soviet authorities, including confrontations with the KGB, that eventually led to his emigration.

Higher purpose. Greater good.
