Crime and Punishment in Russia's Realms: Cynthia Ruder & Janet Stamatel

When you hear the phrase “Crime and Punishment,” you may think of the famous novel by Fyodor Dostoyevsky – or, if you’re a student at the University of Kentucky, you may think about a unique course developed by Cynthia Ruder and Janet Stamatel. The course, titled “A&S 100-401: Crime and Punishment in Russia’s Realms,” will examine issues of crime and punishment from literary, social science, and creative perspectives in Russia and surrounding countries from the 1920s to the present. 

The course is offered as part of the College of Arts & Sciences’ Passport to the World: Reimagining Russia’s Realms. For more information about the course (or to enroll), please contact your academic advisor. The course will run from October until December 2012 on Monday & Wednesday evenings, and is worth two credit hours.

The Passport to the World initiative is sponsored by the A&S Advisory Board.
