Welcome! Добро пожаловать!
VESTNIK was created by The School of Russian and Asian Studies in an effort to effectively encourage the study of Russia and those states formerly a part of the Soviet Union. VESTNIK is a scholarly journal which publishes the best in undergraduate and graduate research on any subject of relevance to that geographic region.
This, our seventh issue, offers three papers that explore comparisons and contrasts. "Russian Orthodox and Roman Catholic Sacred Art" examines differences in motifs and techniques historically used in art produced on the two sides of the great schism. "The Geopolitics of Oil Pipelines in Central Asia" compares and contrasts the foreign policies and proposed pipelines of four major competitors for Central Asia's hydrocarbons. Lastly, "Religious Periodicals and US-Soviet Relations" compares and contrasts how the Cold War was - or wasn't - reflected in periodicals marketed to Catholics and Protestants in the United States.
