Elena Lisitsyna participated in an international conference in St. Petersburg
The project member Elena Lisitsyna took part in the conference "Russian Science in the European Context in the First half of the Nineteenth Century", which was held on November 12–13 in the Russian National Library, St. Petersburg
The conference "Russian Science in the European Context in the First half of the Nineteenth Century" celebrated the 250th anniversary of birth and 190th anniversary of the trip to Russia of a traveller and naturalist, Alexander von Humboldt (1769–1859). His travel across the Urals and Siberia was an important milestone in the networking of the European scientific community with the Russian Empire. The main topics of the discussions were the neglected aspects of Humbolt's research and his collaboration with the Russian scholars, as well as the academic communications between Russia and European countries in the 18th and in the first half of the 19th century. Elena Lisitsyna presented a paper, which was dedicated to the research activities of a Prussian physician J.J. Lerche in the Russian empire (1731–1780).
