Dates: June 30-July 11, 2013
As part of American University’s Initiative for Russian Culture and on the quadricentennial of the Romanov dynasty’s election to the Russian throne in 1613, Professor Anton Fedyashin will take ten students to Russia to visit the most significant cultural sites associated with the Romanovs. “Romanov Russia” will be a 3-credit course open to all graduate and undergraduate students within the Consortium of Universities of the Washington Metropolitan Area. Selection will be based on academic merit and the quality of application responses. During daily seminars the class will discuss Lindsey Hughes’ The Romanovs: Ruling Russia, 1613-1917, which students will read before leaving for Russia. The course will culminate in a 10-page paper exploring one of the monarchs based on the relevant site visited.
