Primary Instructor:

This course is an introduction to the geographic area that comprised the Russian Empire, later the Soviet Union, and now the former Soviet Union. This region is often referred to in a shorthand way as “Russia,” although geographic designations other than Russia are included and at all periods of history, many people other than ethnic Russians have populated the area.

To understand issues and perspectives on the region a large amount of information from different disciplines and perspectives is introduced. Students differ in their backgrounds and initial interests. The professor, graduate student instructors, and guest lecturers will seek to make the information understandable regardless of the background of an individual student.

At the conclusion of the course, each student should have a wide range of knowledge about the Russian Empire, the Soviet Union, and Successor States. The student should be able to analyze and compare major trends in academic thought about the region and to be able to present his or her own views about these issues. The experiences in this course will hopefully motivate students to take additional courses about the region and in a variety of disciplines. The knowledge gained in the course should help each student decide whether to choose a minor, a major, or a career in Russian and East European Studies.
