Prof Yoram Gorlizki - further information
For 13 years, from 1994-2007, I was one of two principal lecturers in the Department's introductory course to Politics, Government I (Poli10201). Although I have now stopped teaching on that course, I still run a popular third year course on contemporary Russian politics (Poli30072) and a second year course on the Politics of East-Central Europe (Poli20952).
I have supervised six Ph.D. students to completion and am happy to take on doctoral students working on current or historical topics relating to Russia or Eurasia.
