The Slavic Research Group (SRG), founded in 1998 under the ægis of the Faculty of Arts of the University of Ottawa, comple­ments and enhances the work of indi­vidual university departments in activ­ities such as research and publication, host­ing academic sympo­sia and spon­soring lectures by pre-emi­nent scholars. Through formal agreements of cooperation, it collaborates with the Russ­ian Aca­demy of Sci­ences (Institute of World Literature, Moscow; Institute of Russian Literature, St Petersburg; Institute of Ethnology and Ethnography, Moscow); the L.N.

The SRG works in liaison with several diplomatic embassies in Ottawa in promoting and disseminating knowledge of Slavic culture among the university and non-university public.
