Russian Space and Russian State
The course examines the ways in which geography shaped Russian history. The enormous Russian space has largely determined the format of the Russian state: indeed, governance in Russia is about the relations between space and the state.
The lectures outline various forms of governance and state-space relations in Russia. This is a journey across five centuries of Russian history and across numerous disciplines: from political economy to semiotics; from sociology to security. Each lecture treats Russian space from a different perspective, giving a colorful multi-dimensional picture of Russian politics and civilization.
