At the Crossroad of Cultures: Russia Between East and West

Russia’s expansion to the East and government-promoted Westernization throughout its imperial history provided the cultural backdrop for Russian literature of the nineteenth and the twentieth centuries. Does Russia belong to East or West? What do Russians mean by the East? Which values do they identify with Western civilization? How did interactions with non-Russian ethnic groups within the Empire help to facilitate Russians’ own quest for an authentic self? The course explores these fundamental issues while examining poetry and prose by universally acclaimed writers. The course is taught in Russian and completion of a third-year Russian language course (or its equivalent) is a prerequisite.
