New Interdisciplinary Russia FSP Application Deadline Feb. 1

The Arthur L. Irving Institute for Energy and Society and the Department of Government are excited to offer a new interdisciplinary program in Russia for summer 2020. Participants will explore Russia's political, social and economic history, contemporary cultural and political life, and domestic and geopolitical energy and climate dynamics, take courses at the Higher School of Economics in Moscow and St. Petersburg, enjoy cultural expeditions across seven time zones (and ride on the Trans-Siberian Railway), meet Russian and international students, and gain invaluable cultural experience in the world's largest country. 

The energy curriculum will explore how Russia's tremendous energy resources – it is the world's largest producer of crude oil and second largest producer of natural gas – shape its domestic and geopolitical history and contemporary role in the world, and how the realities of climate change are affecting Russia in the global transition to more sustainable energy futures.
