Evaluation sheet for departing Fellows
- What would you consider to be the major benefits of your stay at IWM?
– opportunity to focus on the big and demanding translation project
– opportunity to meet interesting researchers and people working with Belarusian issues on an international scale
– opportunity to improve my language skills and to work in very inspirational, international environment
- Was the event programme of the IWM attractive and interesting for you?
Yes, it was very interesting for me. First of all, I appreciate the events around Belarus’ topics, like: Belarus: A Land that Rests on Three “Whales” (Andriej Moskwin), Symposium: Belarus in Contemporary Europe, and the discussion: The Future of Belarus in Europe. It helps me to establish cooperation with the Belarusian scholars, which could be a value in my future projects.
- Do you have any criticisms of any aspect of the Institute’s program and operations?
Please include any suggestions for improvement.
- Is there anything else you would like to let us know regarding your stay at the IWM?
I would like to emphasize that I greatly appreciate the opportunity to work in the institute on holidays and weekends – during a few months of intensive work it’s sometimes necessary to have opportunity to work not only in the office hours and to have unlimited access to the workplace. During the fellowship my life was generally centred on the project (In my “everyday life” I have no possibility to focus so strongly on constant translating.
