2022 Spring Block 7
RUS 250/Course/A - Russian Spies & Statesmen (in English) | Credits 1.00

Russian Spies & Statesmen in Their Own Words (taught in English)

How do Russian and Soviet spies and leaders tell their stories? How do they express a sense of personal and national identity? What do they think about other countries and Russia's standing in the world? In this course we will analyze memoirs and autobiographical works of a number of Russians, including Vladimir Putin, who have been involved in politics and intelligence services. We will explore how they represent themselves and their country, how much of their activities they choose to reveal, and what questions they leave unanswered. Readings and discussions are in English.
