HIST 3450 Social History of Russia Through Literature

This course traces the social history of Russia through its literature and associated art, from the primary chronicles of Kievan Rus through the “golden age” of late-Imperial Russia, the revolutions of 1917, and the Soviet period up to the post-Soviet present. Concentrating mainly on the modern era, it explores the complicated relationship between the Russian/Soviet State and its various subjects as expressed in excerpted novels, short stories, plays, poems, essays, and/or memoirs (in translation) along with graphic art, operatic, and cinematic adaptations.
