The life of foreign students in Russian dormitories: the investigation of a photographer from Tambov, which many did not like

Anonim

About twenty years ago, foreign students began to come to Tambov to get a higher education. At first there were only a few of them, and they attracted a lot of attention. Over the course of 20 years, the number of students has increased significantly, and now about 2, 000 people from Africa and the Maghreb countries enroll at local universities every year. Integration was extremely difficult. How does their life differ from that which the main population of a small Russian provincial town lives in and does it differ at all?

Girl-photographer Nadezhda Yermakova rented students in their rooms in the hostels. Sometimes I met Africans on the street or in transport. After they began to invite her to their parties, birthdays. After the pictures were published in the Russian media, real hell happened. The girl received many negative reviews. Students were criticized by teachers and fellow students. What did they pay for?

Most of them live in dilapidated dormitories with broken door handles, falling plaster and adjacent to cockroaches. It is difficult for Africans to adapt in Russia.
