AMC Online | And What Was Going On Over There? Historical parallels in the USA and Russia
Nowadays with the rising feeling of insecurity due to the pandemic, it’s crucial to understand that history works in mysterious ways and for the most part people from one country are not alone in the swirl of events. And after some turbulence, there are always clear skies. This is a series of 4 lectures aimed at a closer look at historical parallels occurring during peak moments in history. These lectures will mostly turn to Russian and American history and will be held in English, so your language proficiency should be Intermediate and above.
The first lecture on March 24 will focus on the Revolutionary end of the 18th century: Catherine the Great’s support of the Enlightenment was tightly connected with guarding the state against new ideas of the French Revolution, at the very same time as George Washington was fighting the Revolutionary War with the British Crown while nonetheless defending the British Constitution. Let’s take a look at how that happened.
Led by Kristina Kamshilova, a specialist in North American studies (Institute for U.S. and Canadian Studies Diploma). She participated in several exchange programs with the University of Maryland and recently lived in the USA for a year. Currently, her field of interest is comparative historical analysis of Russian-American relations.
