SLAV 5300 - Culture and Identity

This interdisciplinary graduate seminar examines a range of cultural expressions of Russian identity as found in literature, architecture, art, music, dance, journalism, folk art, religious art, film, museums and exhibitions. What is “Russian national culture?” What makes its allure so powerful? What are some of its main controversies? To what extent is Russian culture a myth, an ideal, or a set of practices? Is it dynamic or static?
