HISTORY 418: IMPERIAL RUSSIA, 1801-1914 1111 Humanities, TR 9:30-10:45 Prof. D. McDonald, 3211K Humanities, 263-1807. email: [email protected] Office Hours: Wed. 1-2:30; Fri. 1-3:30 OR by appt. TEXTBOOKS: N. Riasanovsky, A History of Russia , (hardcover or paper, various editions). T. Riha, T.(ed.), Readings in Russian Civilization , vol. II, (pb). B. Clements, B. Engel, and C. Worobec, Russia's Women , (pb.) B. Dmytryshyn, Imperial Russia: A Source Book COURSE INFORMATION AND REQUIREMENTS: History 418 is a lecture course for three, four, or honors credit. It addresses the main themes of Russia's social, intellectual, political, and diplomatic history from the accession of Alexander I in 1801 to the twilight of the imperial order at the beginning of the Great War. Instruction will consist of two components, lectures and section meetings. Lectures will be based on the assigned textbook readings. I assume that students will have read the appropriate texts before coming to lecture. The second part of the course is the weekly section meeting. Attendance at section meetings is mandatory . To encourage attendance, preparation, and participation, work in the section meetings will make up 20% of the final grade. In section meetings, students will discuss assigned texts which treat in greater detail problems or events raised in lecture. Needless to say, students will be expected to have read these texts before going to section. The nature of the written work for this course varies, depending on the number of credits for which the class is being taken. All students will write a brief (5-7pp.) paper

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
