HIS 254 - The Jews of Russia Under Tsars, Soviets, and in the Post-Soviet Era (4 Cr.)

This course examines the Jewish community in Russia and its borderlands from the partitions of Poland in the late 18th century to the present day. We will look at the shifting political rights of Jews under the tsarist, Soviet, and post-Soviet governments; the intellectual community from the Jewish Enlightenment (Haskalah) to the Bolshevik revolutionaries and beyond; the themes of language, culture, family, and tradition over the centuries; the community of the Shtetl; violence and resistance; assimilation and agency; Stalinist anti-Semitism; World War II; the Cold War and emigration to Israel; and Jewish experiences in post-Soviet Russia. Prerequisite: sophomore standing or permission of the instructor. Variable semesters. Corcoran.
