Schedule:

11:00 AM - 12:30 PM

12:30 PM - 6:30 PM - Films “Spirit of Narva: Narva as a Nuclear Town” (2019) and “The National Debt” (2018).
Short documentaries about the past, present, and future of the border town Narva. We are joined by the producer Maarja Lõhmus. Films start at 12:30pm, 3:30pm, and 5:30pm.

1:30 PM - 3:30 PM - Lecture "Mindscapes of an Indigenous People" by linguist and anthropologist Indrek Park.
Most Estonians take it for granted that they are “an indigenous people,” a definition that has a very different meaning in the eyes of international law. Do the people and their language somehow become less indigenous when their land becomes an independent country? A cross-cultural perspective helps to shed light on the indigenous traits that manifest themselves in the cultural and linguistic patterns still surviving in Estonia.
1:30 PM - 2:30 PM in Estonian & 2:30 PM - 3:30 PM in English

2:30 PM - 4:00 PM - Lecture “Soulscapes” by semiotician and writer Valdur Mikita. The bog, the forest, and the sea form a significant part of our cultural identity. What kind of ethnic meaning do our primeval/wild landscapes possess and why do they affect the inner workings of our mind after all? This lecture will be held in Estonian.

4:00 PM - 5:30 PM - "Discussion “Saun: Blending Ancient Traditions with Modern Culture” - Join us for an exploration of Estonia’s ancient sauna culture and its continued relevance in modern Estonian life.

Suggested combined donation for all lectures and documentaries held on April 6th is $15

1.30 pl / 2.30 pl Keeleteadlase ja antropoloogi Indrek Parki loeng "Põlisrahva keelemeelest”. Arutellu tuleb põlisrahva mõiste, küsime, kas eestlased on põlisrahvas ning kuidas keel ja keskkond rolli mängivad.

2.30 pl Semiootiku ja kirjaniku Valdur Mikita loeng “Hingemaastikud”. Raba, mets ja meri on oluline osa meie kultuurilisest identiteedist. Mis on meie põliste maastike rahvuslik tähendus ja miks nad ikkagi tugevalt mõjutavad meie sise- ja vaimuilma?

4 pl Saunaentusiastide vestlusring “Eestlasel on saunahing”. Arutleme eestlaste saunakultuse teemadel ning miks leiame ikka ja jälle sumedatel õhtutel tee kuuma kerise äärde.

Annetus loengute ja dokumentaalfilmide eest $15
