We are happy to welcome our new intern, MA Laura Pennisi, who is joining RUCARR and the Department of Global Political Studies during the period September to the beginning of November 2020. She is currently studying a master program in Russian and Eurasian Studies at Uppsala University.
Laura Pennisi holds a Bachelor in Communication Studies (Catania University) and a Master in translation studies (Sapienza University of Rome), both with a major in Modern Greek language, literature and history. After living several years in Greece, she developed a keen interest in the Greek communities of the post-Soviet space with a particular focus on the Caucasus. As an intern at RUCARR, she seeks to deepen her theoretical knowledge and get the necessary skills for her future research activities. She is also completing a master program in International Relations at Staffordshire University.
