This paper examined growing trends of nationalism and patriotic ideology as represented in Russian history education. Authors performed a survey of history teachers (n = 113) to determine their perspectives on paradigm shifts in the discipline and the impact of a compulsory patriotism-centered curriculum upon history education in the Russian Federation. The study was conducted during a time of prominent political and military activity in Russia, and revealed that the majority of survey participants favored a shift from that of post-perestroika, democracy-based history to a more ideological, grand narrative of national history.
