This class was tough.
This class is a lot of work but interesting. A unique topic of study that focuses on just the city of St. Petersburg and how it is perceived by Russians and how this perception has changed. This class is a cultural study that is based heavily on literature though there is some music and art thrown in. Professor Troncale expects a lot, but it is doable and he is very understanding if you need to ask for an extension.
This class really teaches you how to write as Dr. Troncale emails back documents with feedback written on them.

Advice for students:
Do the readings for the class as classes tend to be Socratic in nature.
