Научный Дискуссионный Клуб запустился

30 января 2019 г. состоялась первая встреча  Научного Дискуссионного Клуба.

Academic Discussion Club (ADC) – площадка для обсуждения актуальных идей, открытий, процессов, происходящих в мировом научном пространстве на английском языке. 

Первая встреча была посвящена обсуждению коллапсу обществ. Для участия в первой встрече участникам рекомендовалось прочитать отдельные страницы книг Джареда Даймонда "Коллапс. Почему одни общества выживают, а другие умирают". (Diamond, Jared M. Collapse: how societies choose to fail or succeed) и  Джосефа Тайнера "Коллапс сложных обществ" (Tainter, Joseph A. (1988). The collapse of complex societies). 

Денис Шарапов, стипендиат фонда Фулбрайта (2018-2019 гг.) в качестве модератора первой встречи задал оживленный тон дискуссии.

"Посещение дебютного заседания дискуссионного клуба оставило исключительно позитивные впечатления. Интереснейший материал для дискуссии, харизматичный модератор, непринуждённая атмосфера. Модератором был задана правильная установка, позволившая не обращать внимание на уровень языка и ошибки, а получать удовольствие от общения. С нетерпением жду следующего заседания".

Speaking is an essential part of academic communication. That's why I am glad to participate in the Academic Discussion Club. The first meeting was fascinating! I enjoyed both the quality of our discussion and the way the moderator conducted it. All guests had a chance to express their opinions, different points of view were compared, and the conclusions were made accurately and precisely. The topic, societal collapse, was interdisciplinary enough to enhance the exchange of opinions of the participants as we all were from different fields of science. Thanks to Valerya and Denis and congratulations with the beginning of such an interesting and useful project! I wish many fruitful discussions and productive collaborations to all of us.

I would like to thank Denis Sharapov and Valeria Evdash for organizing the first meeting of Academic Discussion Club. The discussion was informative and well moderated by Denis. I personally have learned a lot about Archaeology and the ancient monuments. The number of people was appropriate for such format so everyone had a chance to share their thoughts on the topic. I highly recommend all the researchers and lecturers of our university to take part in the upcoming discussions!

I was happy to participate in an opening meeting of Academic Discussion Club. The topic “Societal Collapse” was urgent and dramatic. Thank you, Denis, Valeria, and Anna! Special thanks for the books, which I learned about because they were assigned to read.  And I appreciated inviting me to be a moderator of the March Meeting.
