On the blog: Towards a Transnational Russian Studies Read the Open Access Introduction on Modern Languages Open Table of Contents Byford, AndyDoak, ConnorHutchings, Stephen Share Share CancelShareFormatHardbackFormatPaperbackTransnational Russian Studies offers an approach to understanding Russia based on the idea that language, society and culture do not neatly coincide, but should be seen as flows of meaning across ever-shifting boundaries.

Our book moves beyond static conceptions of Russia as a discrete nation with a singular language, culture, and history. Instead, we understand it as a multinational society that has perpetually redefined Russianness in reaction to the wider world. We treat Russian culture as an expanding field, whose sphere of influence transcends the geopolitical boundaries of the Russian Federation, reaching as far as London, Cape Town, and Tehran. Our transnational approach to Russian Studies generates new perspectives on the history of Russian culture and its engagements with, and transformation by, other cultures.

The volume thereby simultaneously illuminates broader conceptions of the transnational from the perspective of Russian Studies. Our volume is aimed primarily at students and researchers in Russian Studies, but it will also be relevant to all Modern Linguists, and to those who employ transnational paradigms within the broader humanities.

Russian Studies at Wooster is an interdisciplinary program, offering courses in Russian language, literature, culture and film. Students focus on Russia and Eurasia in their cultural, historical, and political contexts, developing proficiency in the Russian language in connection with their other academic and professional interests. Russian majors and minors also take courses in the History department, and majors receive guidance from both Russian Studies and History department faculty.

Our students have successfully pursued double majors with programs like Global and International Studies, Political Science, Mathematics, and English, among others. Faculty and students in Russian Studies form a close and lively community. Faculty are always available for conversations about courses, life in Russia, and are glad to practice the Russian language informally outside of class. Often students live in the Russian House, a suite in Luce Hall.

The department also organizes outings to Russian-related cultural events in Cleveland and other nearby cities. Russian Studies majors and minors pursue a wide range of careers.

Our alumni have worked in areas as diverse as education, law, information technology, the military, real estate, social work and journalism. Several have found work with not-for-profit organizations. Our alumni hold jobs as diverse as attorney, consultant, court clerk, designer, marine corps pilot, operations and research coordinator, social worker, college professor.

Over the past 10 years four of our graduates have received prestigious Fulbright awards to spend a year in Russia on teaching and research fellowships. In addition, our students have received full scholarships to participate in the Russian Summer Workshop at Indiana University (Bloomington), and have been awarded the Critical Language Scholarship to study in Moscow.

Most students take advantage of study abroad opportunities facilitated by The College of Wooster and all students at Wooster complete Independent Study, which involves writing a senior thesis. This experience gives students a strong foundation in research that prepares them well for a variety of careers.

Students typically spend the fall semester of their junior year studying in Russia. Recently students have spent a semester abroad in St.

Students have the opportunity to explore programs in Russophone countries other than Russia, such as Kyrgyzstan, Latvia, Ukraine, Georgia and Kazakhstan. The Global Cafe, located in the lower level of Luce, is a place for socializing, learning about other cultures, and enjoying the company of other language learners.
