Courses in Russian and East European Studies (REES) (Division 468)

405. Topics in Russian and East European Studies. (1-4). (Excl).
Section 101 Narrative Analysis, Oral Histories, Focus Groups: Approaches to Identity and Social Problems. (3 credits).
This course is designed to prepare participants to study emergent social identities and social problems in collaboration with scholars from Estonia, Ukraine, and Uzbekistan. In the course we will explore issues of data-gathering and analysis in readings, class discussion, and practical exercises. Beginning with the topic of oral histories, we will proceed to narrative analysis, and end on the topic of focus groups. The format will allow for discussion of theoretical and empirical aspects of the assigned readings, designs for on-site investigations, and time to develop mock interview and other activities.
