By presenting the story of human achievements, hopes and frustrations, struggles and triumphs, the department helps the inquiring student to understand our complex world and shape its future.
Filmmaker Yelena Demikovsky will present her new, much talked about documentary film project "Black Russians: The Red Experiment." The film screening will be followed by Q&A with the film's creator.
Writer Marina Antropow Cramer will present her novel 'Roads' (2017) and give a talk "Between Two Tyrants: One Family's Journey from Stalin's Russia to Hitler's Labor Camps".
Students experienced history first-hand through object-based learning (OBL), an approach that adds value to classroom studies with objects from SHU's Archives and Special Collections.
