SWEDISH IN BELARUS

Swedish in Belarus is a project by me and my sister Jenny Lindgren. It is a project about the Swedish language in Belarus. Teaching in Swedish takes place at two universities in the Belarusian capital Minsk and at the University of Polotsk, in northern Belarus.  The Centre for Swedish studies in Minsk offers studies in Swedish at non academic level.

There are several hundred Belarusians studying Swedish every year. We met some of the students and teachers and photographed them and listened to their personal stories. The project is ongoing and has been shown in exhibition venues in Sweden and universities in Belarus.
