Slavic Languages and 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.
