Breaking History: A World History Podcast
Episode 5: 19th Century Russian-Bulgarian Diplomatic History with Dr. Mikhail Rekun
(We recorded slightly out of order, so despite what we say, this is actually Episode 5.)
Join Northeastern University Graduate Students James Robinson and Kyra Millard as we discuss the 19th Century Russian-Bulgarian Diplomatic History with newly minted PhD Mikhail Rekun. How did Pan-Slavism influence how Russian diplomats treated the newly independent Bulgaria? Dr. Rekun talks about his research adventures in the Bulgarian and Russian archives. He also touches on writing his dissertation and defending it. How does Diplomatic History fit into World History?
