Courses

While I like to teach all levels of Russian Language,  my favorite course is Beginning Russian.  Currently I teach first-year and sometimes second-year Russian.  In addition, I offer a course on 20-21st-Century Soviet & Russian Literature, a Seminar on the Soviet Gulag, and less frequently a Seminar on Stalinist Culture that I team-teach with Prof. Karen Petrone in the History Department. I enthusiastically support Education Abroad, administer the Russian Studies Education Abroad Scholarship, and work with students to gain external funding for study abroad.
