This writing seminar is open to all students planning to write their thesis on a topic related to ‘Late Modern Europe.’ While all topics are welcome, those particularly interested in the region of Russia, Eurasia, or Eastern Europe, as well as those with an emphasis on cultural history, are especially encouraged to register. We will meet during the first few weeks to discuss research and writing strategies, formulate reading lists, and identify primary source bases. Over the course of the semester, students will be expected to submit occasional progress reports and meet individually with the instructor. We will reconvene during the last several weeks to present and workshop finished papers.
