Hungary & Its East-Central European Neighbors: The View From Moscow, 1945-2015

Thursday, April 28, 2016 - 6:00pm to 7:30pm

Until the late 1980s, Soviet leaders after World War II regarded Hungary and other East-Central European countries as an extension of their own country’s frontiers. Threats to the security of an East European Communist regime, whether external or internal, were seen as threats to Soviet security as well. Talk will discuss whether under President Putin Russia is returning to the same paradigm?

East Central European Cities in Comparative Perspective

This course uses readings from cultural history and urban sociology, literature, film, and the arts to shed light on the East-Central European urban experience from the early nineteenth century to the present. Cities in this region share a common experience of transformation of urban space from modernization in the late nineteenth century (mostly under foreign rule), independence and further development between the wars, rebuilding and expansion under state socialism and Soviet hegemony after WWII and new kinds of rebuilding and expansion since 1989.

Empire and Ethnicity in Modern Russian History

Regions Covered: 
Historical Central Eurasia

This colloquium offers a comparative study of the concept of empire and of the major nationalities in tsarist Russia and the USSR. It seeks to provide an antidote to a traditional Russocentric approach as well as to narrow ethnocentric views regarding the non-Russian areas. We will stress the period since the mid-19th century when national movements began emerging among many of the ethnic groups in the empire. The course will assess developments both from the perspective of the center (nationality “policy” in St. Petersburg and Moscow) and that of the non-Russian borderlands.
