Yekaterinburg citizens to take part in a study of the modern city
The study, which will be run by scientists from the Institute of History and Archaeology, the Ural branch of RAS and Ural Federal University students, will attempt to answer the question of what is a modern sub-culture that is in the interests of today's citizens, Mir66 reports.
The researchers will study the system of communications within the city, as well as how citizens communicate between religions, corporate relations and the culture of the streets.
"Gone are the days when academic science existed in a closed vessel's own," Andrei Golovnev, one of the project's researchers, said, according to Mir66. "No, the relevance of today's very lively. Either the science is responsible for important issues, or it is no use to anybody."
Golovnev said that Yekaterinburg and Nizhny Tagil are attractive because they are the crossroads of cultures and religions but remain independent.
The researchers plan to visit temples and urban communities where migrants gather for observation and will utilize surveys and questionnaires for people on the street.
