A Word from the Rector
Welcome to the Institute for the Humanities and Information Technologies (IGUMO&IT)!
From a college with some 20 students founded at the dawn of Perestroyka, IGUMO has grown into an full-scale innovative institution of higher education with a mission to advance knowledge, promote teaching and research, and help modern Russian society to discover new ways to overcome its most pressing problems.
IGUMO's academic environment attracts outstanding students and scholars from around the country and abroad, while its generous financial aid programmes make IGUMO accessible to students from all economic backgrounds. IGUMO is proud of its ties with the local community. Our musical and theatrical offerings, public lectures, and forums enhance the intellectual and cultural vibrancy of the region.
At IGUMO, education is limited neither by time nor space. It is an ongoing and restless research, one to which this Institute is dedicated. It is a pleasure for me to welcome you to IGUMO.
Rector of IGUMO&IT, Professor, Doctor of Juridical Science (PhD, Doctor of Law)
IGUMO On-Line News:
Students of the IGUMO stepped in the Federation Council halls once more to witness the businesswomen from all parts of Russia discuss pressing issues of the Russian business. Valentina Matvienko and her deputy, Galina Karelova, chaired the meeting.
It’s no secret that our Institute is always full of exciting events and projects. This time, on the 22nd of October, we had a Health Day outdoors! Even the rector admitted it hadn’t been quite easy for her to wake up on Saturday morning after a working week, but there was nothing left to sleep on the central square of Izmailovsky park, sunlit and full of music. The event gathered lots of students, professors of the Institute and even some bystanders.
Global Talents is an IGUMO project that helps gifted children from all over Russia to express themselves and show their talents to the whole country. Now the time has come to renew that wonderful resource! On the 18th October Global Talents’ steering committee met to discuss and develop the project. And all of you can already see the results. Now the site navigation is easier. We added the buttons linking the site with its official VK and Facebook groups. You can also post your blogs and news from your Global Talents page directly to social networks. Also the design is going to change soon and you’ll see how it will play out in fresh colours. Stay tuned!
Let me introduce myself. I am Ksenia Panteleyeva, a student of the 4th year, Faculty of Linguistics, and I’ve picked up some hands-on experience to share with fellow treaders on the path of translation. This summer I tried a real translation bureau for a job of a translator’s assistant. It was really priceless, I realized that my translation classes really matter, and, what I am really proud of, sometimes I had an opportunity to check the work of the professionals and even correct their work sometimes - and, at the same time, to find something new I could learn.
On October 6, 2016 Yuri Andreychuk, a linguist and translator, together with the editor Anna Andreychuk conducted a workshop in IGUMO. On the material of computer games The Witcher-2 and The Witcher-3 they told about stages, peculiarities and difficulties of video game translation and gave some advice on how to get over them.
