Description

How did Russians and non-Russians interact in the complicated world of tsarist, and then Soviet, empire? From educational practices to family life, from military history to the world of high politics, from gender roles to religious beliefs—we will track the role of ethnicity and nationality in Eurasia.

This topical seminar is designed to introduce the methods of historical analysis and to explore an important theme in the tsarist Russian and Soviet past. The focus is on issues of race, ethnicity, and nationality—on the macro level of state politics, discourse, and economic, social, and cultural policy as well as the micro level of lived social experience and personal identity.
