Hear about exciting research and participate in a faculty feedback opportunity! Sean Pollock, Ph.D. welcomes your feedback on his in-progress paper, "How to Die for Rus": The Afterlives of Prince Peter Bagration between Russian Empire & Nation.

Professor Pollock's current research focuses on the history and memory of the Russian campaign of 1812, which Russians have ever since called the Patriotic War. Specifically, he is interested in the ways that individuals and institutions have used memories of Prince Petr Ivanovich Bagration (pronounced ba-gra-ti-ON), a Russian general who died from complications related to wounds received during the battle of Borodino, to advance claims about Russian empire and nation between 1812 and 2012.

Free and open to faculty, staff, students, and the public

For a digital copy of Professor Pollock's paper, please email sean.pollock@wright.edu. Hard copies may be picked up in 470 Millett Hall.

Following the discussion, the School of Humanities and Cultural Studies will host a social hour at the Wandering Griffin.
