Russian, East European, and Eurasian Studies
This series constitutes an attempt to bridge the gap between the ‘two cultures’ in Russian studies. It features lectures by historians, literary scholars, anthropologists, and media theorists whose work illuminates a specific aspect of science in Russian culture from a standpoint that is theoretical, historical and epistemological—from medicine to media and technology, from astronomy to biology, from physics to animal and environmental studies.
Co-sponsored by the Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures, the University Center for Human Values, the Council on Science and Technology, the Council of the Humanities and the Program in European Cultural Studies.
