Postcommunist Russian Literature, Film, and Society
Full course for one semester. The course will begin with a
consideration of the political, economic, and cultural background
against which the current developments in Russia are taking place.
We will then explore recent literary texts and other artistic
productions with a view to what they reveal concerning such themes
as the new nationalisms, constructions of gender, and the
confrontation with the Soviet and Russian past. Prerequisite:
students who wish to take the course for Russian credit must have
completed Russian 220 or obtain the consent of the instructor.
Conference. Cross-listed as Literature 389.
