HIS 220 - Imperial Russia From Peter the Great to the Revolution (4 Cr.)


Beginning with the vast reforms of Peter the Great to both Russian politics and culture, this course traces Russia’s search for modernity and its unique place in the world vis-à-vis both Europe and Asia. We will study the persistence of autocracy under the tsars; serfdom and emancipation; the expansion of the Russian empire; the development of socialist thought among the intelligentsia; urban migration; and the onset of violent revolution at the turn of the 20th century. Prerequisite: sophomore standing or permission of the instructor. Fall semester. Corcoran.
