Abstract

On the occasion of Europe switching from summer time to winter time and plunging into a period of darkness, Jan Čulík talks to Professor Andrei Rogatchevsky, formerly of the University of Glasgow, who now teaches Russian Studies at the University of Tromsø, Norway, far beyond the Polar Circle and quite near the Russian border, about what it is like to live in total darkness for many months of the year. Dr. Rogatchevsky says that winter darkness in Tromsø does not bother him so much as does permanent daylight in the summer because you cannot sleep. In the interview, he explains various aspects of teaching Russian Studies at the University of Tromsø, comparing it to Russian Studies in Glasgow, and discusses the work of the Russian author Limonov. The interview was broadcast by the Czech cable TV station Regionaklnitelevize.cz from 2nd November 2021. The interview is conducted in English, it has Czech subtitles.
