Today's program is a continuation of last week's conversation about "Reimagining Russia's Realms," the College of Arts and Sciences' in-depth examination of the people, art, cultures and homelands of Eurasia.

Cynthia Ruder and Karen Petrone on WRFL

Karen Petrone and Cindy Ruder (from History and MCL, respectively) are two of the A&S faculty members behind this year’s Passport to the World initiative – Reimagining Russia’s Realms. They stopped by the studios of UK’s student-run radio station, WRFL 88.1 FM, to talk to host Mick Jeffries on his show, Trivial Thursdays. They discussed the final installment of the Animated Film Series focusing on the Perestroika Period of the 1980s. The discussion also covered a number of other events and programs involved in this year’s initiative and, of course, all things Russian.

Crime and Punishment in Russia's Realms: Cynthia Ruder & Janet Stamatel

When you hear the phrase “Crime and Punishment,” you may think of the famous novel by Fyodor Dostoyevsky – or, if you’re a student at the University of Kentucky, you may think about a unique course developed by Cynthia Ruder and Janet Stamatel. The course, titled “A&S 100-401: Crime and Punishment in Russia’s Realms,” will examine issues of crime and punishment from literary, social science, and creative perspectives in Russia and surrounding countries from the 1920s to the present. 

The course is offered as part of the College of Arts & Sciences’ Passport to the World: Reimagining Russia’s Realms. For more information about the course (or to enroll), please contact your academic advisor. The course will run from October until December 2012 on Monday & Wednesday evenings, and is worth two credit hours.

The Passport to the World initiative is sponsored by the A&S Advisory Board.
