“Traditional costume as a mirror of Karelian culture”

2nd year undergraduates Anna Turkina and Tatyana Makarova conducted an interactive lesson on Karelian folk costume for 4th year students of the Department of Baltic-Finnish Philology of the Institute of Philology and the Department of Theory and Methodology of Primary Education of the Institute of Pedagogy and Psychology.
The lesson took place in the Ethnodom, the recreated interior of which perfectly suited the theme of the event, during which cultural and linguistic aspects were touched upon.
The students came in traditional costumes made with their own hands, and, using their example, told about the symbolism of each part of the costume – shirt, belt, headdress – using terminology in Livvik and the Karelian dialects of the Karelian language.
