Interview with Edward Mahabir '15

Interview with Edward Mahabir '15

This project interested me because I want to examine how people perceive their past, and how that perception influences their national pride and identity. To research that, I want to look at two historical figures, Catherine the Great and Nicholas II, each of whom represented crucial moments and identities in Russian History. I'm going to examine different biographies, relying as much as possible on Russian sources.

Interview with Sarah Levin '13

Professor Roberts is currently working on a project about how the lives of French Enlightenment savants intersected with their public lives. I started my project by investigating if the trends she discovered in France also occurred in 18th century Britain. From there, I narrowed my topic to just the eccentric Lunar Society, a philosophical society in British Midlands. Click here for Jenny's interview.
