Courses – Fall 2022 / Old Courses / RUSSIAN GEOGRAPHY
Coordinators: Stephen R. Baker, Pete Weis
The history of Russia, a country encompassing one sixth of the land on our planet, has been in large measure molded by the exigencies of its geography and influenced more by its rivers than its mountains
It has been influenced in the East more by its climates than its cultures and in the peripheries to an equal degree by ice and water. Each of these factors has contributed forcefully to its uniqueness.
This lecture series seeks to provide specifics with facts and impressions related to Russia’s particular terrestrial situations and configurations.
