English poet, playwright, and critic W.H. Auden exerted a major influence on the poetry of the 20th century. Auden grew up in Birmingham, England and was known for his extraordinary intellect and wit. Just before World War II broke out, Auden emigrated to the United States and made his life there. Auden won the Pulitzer Prize in 1948 for The Age of Anxiety. Much of his poetry is concerned with moral issues and evidences a strong political, social, and psychological context. While the teachings of Marx and Freud weighed heavily in his early work, they later gave way to religious and spiritual influences. In this talk we look at Auden's life, influences, major works, how he has influenced others, and how he is remembered today. Please join us on Saturday, August 4 at 4 p.m. Led by a native speaker from England. (in English)

The first major conflict of the Cold War, the Korean War (1950-53) was a test of the will of the communist and western countries to defend their ideologies on a foreign battleground, a formula that would be repeated throughout the rest of the Cold War. On the heels of the Second World War, the conflict in Korea came as an unexpected and unwanted shock to everyone involved; Western fear of communism, a desire for peace after WWII, and the new power of the atomic bomb made complicated and novel questions for the world’s political leaders. In this History Club we will discuss the reasons and the outcomes of the Korean War: Why was Korea divided? Why were the U.S. and Soviet Union involved? How did the outcomes of the War influence the Cold War? What role did the nuclear bomb play in the conflict? Please join us on Saturday, August 4 at 2.00 p.m. Meetings are held in English.

“The Matrix” by the Wachowskis was released in 1999. How does this movie stand 19 years later? Is it still perceived just as a very successful sci-fi action, which has also acquired a cult following due to its enigmatic philosophical connotations? Or did it prove to be extremely accurate social observations and a morbid prophecy? And what about human society? Is it choosing the path of Neo? Or does the Matrix “have“ it? We will talk about it at our upcoming session on Friday, August 3 at 7 p.m. Film Club is hosted by Dmitry Leonov. Meetings are held in English.
