Lizaveta Lysenka took part in the Graduate Student Conference on the Late Soviet Union at The Davis Center for Russian and Eurasian Studies, Harvard University

Lizaveta Lysenka's paper focused on how VIA "Pesnyary" represented Belarusianness in music and visual design of albums, music videos, and stage costumes. The national images in their work were considered as an example of the heterogeneity of the late Soviet popular culture and the ambiguity of the relationship between folk and national in it.
The conference agenda can be found on the website of the Davies Center for Russian and Eurasian Studies.
