Norway & Russia
Course Description: 
 
This course will involve travel in both Norway (Oslo and Lillehammer) and Russia (St. Petersburg and Moscow). In this course we will examine cultural and historical ties between Russia and Scandinavia, beginning with the Varangians (Vikings) in medieval times as the first ruling dynasty in medieval Rus’ was established, as well as their ties with the Silk Road in Central Asia (now part of the Former Soviet Union). We will follow these ties to the present day, with special consideration given to the experiences of Norway and the FSU during WWII and contemporary environmental issues (such as exploration of the Arctic, territorial rights, and environmental pollution). Norway’s important role in international peace and dialog in the FSU (Armenia, Russia, Ukraine) will be discussed in relation to the Nansen Center for Peace and Dialogue (Lillehammer). The study of art, architecture, music and literature of Norway and Russia is also an important component of the course. In each country our group is joined by local colleagues who are experts in their fields.
