Spring 2017 writer-in-residence Masha Gessen responds to a student question in a post-screening discussion of the Gogol’s Wives documentary Pussy vs. Putin.


OCREECAS began an annual writer-in-residence program in fall 2015 to expand its curricular offerings and out-of-class events.

OCREECAS also collaborates with the Russian faculty and the Russian and East European Studies Committee on events featuring a variety of guest artists and speakers. Information on the residencies and on past programs and events of OCREECAS, the Russian Department, and the Russian and East European Studies Program are available in the Newsletter Archive.
