Who is Russia? An Historical Perspective
February 16 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm$5
Tsars and mad monks, trolls and spies, painters and composers, rocket scientists and Nobel-prize winners. So what is Russia? Or maybe it is fairer to ask: Who is Russia?
Professor Seegel examines the history of the world’s largest country from ancient conflicts and dynasties through to Marxism, the Cold War, the fall of the USSR, and Vladimir Putin, now entering his 19th year as the country’s controversial strong man.
Steven Seegel, Professor of Russian and European History University of Northern Colorado Department of History
