Description

How strong is Vladimir Putin's regime? Do Russians support the war in Ukraine? What does the life of ordinary Russians in remote regions look like? Is there racism in Russia? Who are Russian nationalists and what are their political views? The course will examine these and other questions addressing contemporary Russian domestic politics, foreign policy, economy, and social problems. Students will learn about the main issues, organizations, and figures in the Russian political arena and will be able to place the current news into a larger political and historical context. They will also have an opportunity to examine a topic or a personality of particular interest to them or choose an exam option if they have a broad interest in the course. All readings will be in English.
