Slavic Languages & Literatures | Read in Russian Culture, History and Society 2
R408 | ALL | Richter


In this course students read a variety of Russian expository prose,
including newspapers and journal articles and covering topics dealing with
all aspects of Russian culture. The specific selection of texts to be read
is tailored in part to the interests of the students. The purpose of the
course is to help students develop reading and translating strategies. Thus
time is spent as required on problematic grammatical constructions and the
efficient use of a dictionary. In addition to the texts read in class, each
student is asked to translate 30 pages of text of his or her choosing
outside of class.
