The Metaprogramme “Skills4Future” is a campus-wide project initiated for bachelor students of all degree programs focused on acquiring 4 soft skills – collaboration, communication, creativity, and critical thinking.
Each student benefits from the learning experience in one of the intellectual labs developed by leading professors of HSE – St Petersburg. Within the Intellectual Lab, guided by the Lab’s tutors, the students will work on a particular problem or case to work out the solutions. On top of the Lab’s activities, the metaprogramme includes a series of workshops focused on acquiring the 4 skills, and guest lectures.
The Intellectual Lab in Social Anthropology is supervised by Nikolai Ssorin-Chaikov. Lab’s research focus is on the impact of covid-19 on post-covid sociality in its aspects such as work time, family time, consumption. What was ‘social’ in modalities of ‘social distancing’? Cases include transformations of sociality at work and home sociality (consumption, social organization of domestic space and health, ethnography of ageing), and religiosity (relations and social spaces in church).
