Chekh It Out

Chekh It Out is your all-purpose interactive guide to Anton Chekhov’s play The Three Sisters.

The text of this play is loaded with links, polls, puns, translation and language notes, photos and videos, all designed to add context and value to your reading experience. We advise you to read through the play at least once before using the site, since discussion questions and intra-textual references may spoil the ending for you.

Interviewing the Crime and Punishment Characters, a video by Tess Clark, John Montroy, and Eli Mauksch.

The purpose of this video and project was to enhance the reader’s understanding and experience of Crime and Punishment by bringing to life the main characters of Dostoevsky’s novel.

Enterprise Land Use in the Russian Federation

Learn more about Russian and Economics at Middlebury College.

What is the state of urban industrial land use in Russia today? Why did the 2001 Land Code reforms fail, and what is more, why does successful reform have yet to be instated? What are the economic effects of ineffective land reform in Russia, and are there legal or other effects, as well? Most importantly, which amendments need to be considered in order to create effective Russian land policy?
