SS 308/309 RUSSIA TODAY: THE HISTORY BEHIND THE NEWS. An exploratory discussion. Class presentation available.

This is an on-going study series exploring the political, cultural, religious and economic spheres of Russia today. And, it is always necessary to understand the history behind so much that is happening in East Europe, the Middle East, and the Asian sphere of Russian interests.  Often current events dictate the subjects examined in each session.  When possible, outside experts are invited to join in the discussion.

NOTE:  Please enroll in only one class. SS 308 and SS 309 are repeat classes.

Presenter/Developer: Peggy Maradudin has an MA in European History from UCI, and an MA in Russian Language and Literature from USC.  This class has been presented twice a year for the last six years.  She has also taught areas of Russian and Soviet History and Russian Culture at Chapman University, Saddleback College, and CSUF.  She has lived in, and traveled to, the region a number of times, and she took her first group to the Soviet Union in 1989.  She returned to Russia and other parts of the former Soviet Union with groups until 2000 including trips to Siberia, the Baltic States, the Volga River and Ukraine.  Since then, she and her husband continue to travel to Russia and East Europe often, the latest being May/June 2014
