Associate Prof. Katia Levintova will headline the first UW-Green Bay Dinner Lecture Series event of the 2013-14 academic year, presenting “Russia Today” Thursday, Sept. 26 in the Phoenix Rooms of the University Union. Levintova, Public and Environmental Affairs, will focus on numerous aspects of Russia’s diversity, from climates, landscapes and cultures to traditions, history, language, customs and more. A native of Moscow, Levintova spends time there during the summers, visiting family and doing research. In addition to her talk, Levintova helped shape the menu for the Sept. 26 event, which includes Russian potato salad (a personal favorite), Borsch, beef stroganoff, stuffed cabbage roll and more.
