On September 19, 2018 an international scientific conference devoted to the 100th anniversary of the collection "Iz glubiny" ("From the depths") was held at the National Research University "Higher School of Economics"
In the year of the centennial anniversary of the collection of essays "Iz Glubiny" ("From the depths") the International Laboratory for the Study of Russian and European Intellectual Dialogue organized the conference "De Profundis, or Requiem for Pre-Revolutionary Russia."
