FORDHAM RUSSIAN FORUM EVENTS AT LINCOLN CENTER CAMPUS

Get Involved

In the spring of 2017, Prof. Ossorgin founded the Fordham Russian Forum (FRF), for which he facilitates in-person discussions between Russian experts and the exceptionally engaged students and faculty at Fordham. He collaborates with colleagues, students and the wealth of talented people in New York City who approach Russian culture creatively, insightfully and fairly. Discussions are open to Manhattanites who seek a nuanced understanding of Russian culture. Take a look at the past events and mark your calendar for the next!
