About Russia's Realms and Passport to the World
For the 2012-2013 academic year, the College is proud to offer as the next installment of the Passport to the World Program – Reimagining Russia’s Realms: Peoples, Arts, Cultures, and Homelands of Eurasia. The coming year’s programming will focus on three major themes the United States and Russia have in common - the challenges of ruling diverse and dynamic geographic territories; the pursuit of internal and external security; and an abundance of creativity and innovation.
The integration of art, history, literature, religion, geography, the social sciences, environmental science, and other disciplines will enable students, faculty, alumni, and members of the community to realize that Russia is so much more than the image of Vladimir Putin or Vladimir Lenin. Indeed, the series will demonstrate how much in common Americans and Russians have, while investigating the differences between us.
