Russian Studies in the Era of Trump

This is the introduction to a SEEB series organized by Ani Kokobobo, Associate Professor and Director of Graduate Studies in the Department of Slavic Languages & Literatures at the University of Kansas.


Redefining the Russian Civilization and Culture Survey for the Trump Era

Except Princess Olga, Elizabeth, and Catherine II, there were few women discussed in the Russian civilization and culture course that Rachel Stauffer taught. There was little discussion of gender, race, ethnicity, and social class in Russia’s artistic, literary, and cultural history. In light of recent events, she has decided that she can no longer continue to teach this course without devoting more time to these topics.
