Social Science and Russian Studies: Value Added or Obfuscated?

26.09.2019
In Russian/Soviet studies in the West, historians and literature scholars have played central roles. Social scientists, mostly in political science, stepped into the ring after World War II, often pursuing modernization and totalitarian theories whose insights ultimately were overshadowed by errors of logic and fact. Political scientists have returned with useful insights on political economy, voting, and policy-making. But what about sociology-what has it offered in the past, and what can it offer in the future?

OBSERVATIONS AND MUSINGS OF AN AMERICAN JOURNALIST IN RUSSIA

18.10.2016
Matthew Bodner will speak about his experiences as a reporter in Russia: including differences between Russian and Western media cultures, the so-called information war between east and west, and the nature of truth (kidding, hopefully). The talk will closely follow developments in Ukraine and Syria and how Russian media and official narratives corresponded to those events.

РОССИЙСКАЯ ВНЕШНЯЯ ПОЛИТИКА: ОЧЕРЕДНОЙ ПОВОРОТ?

30.03.2016
5 апреля, 17:30, Золотой зал, с открытой лекцией выступил главный редактор журнала «Россия в глобальной политике» Фёдор Лукьянов. Russian foreign policy is closely connected both to domestic political needs and dynamics of external situation. Both those factors are now rapidly developing. Domestic consolidation is solid, but lacks long-term vision, while international trends are out of anybody's control. Next couple of years will be decisive both in terms of global power constellation and in the context of Russian external vectors.

Reimagining Marriage: Tolstoy’s “Kreutzer Sonata” (1889) and Room’s “Bed and Sofa” (1927)

27.10.2015
In the 1880s and 1890s the “sexual question” began to occupy the Russian intelligentsia. Writers addressed the inequities between the sexes, raising questions about the very nature of love and marriage. These debates intensified in the early twentieth century and revolutionary period. In this talk, I will address two fictional texts which can be viewed as bookends to this discussion: Lev Tolstoy’s “Kreutzer Sonata” (1889) and Abram Room’s “Bed and Sofa” («Третья Мещанская») (1927).
