UNDERSTANDING RUSSIA

[Instructor]
Andriy Nakortchevski

[Course Guide]

Course Description:

During this course we will discuss two different approaches to what is usually interpreted as a common history of Ukraine and Russia. We will challenge the so called “standard” interpretation of historical events common to both countries and will discuss how contrasting could be a approaches of different people to one and the same historical episode personality. We will see how contemporary politics influence interpretation of events in the past and to what extent a current situation is determined so called “historical memory”. Hopefully, in the end will get better understanding of what is going on in Ukraine and Russia now and what we can expect in the future.
At least some preliminary knowledge of Ukraine and Russia history is required.

Classes: 13
