Primary Instructor:

The USSR and modern Russia have a long legacy of using cinema to deliver political messages and build ideological myths. In this course we will be watching, analyzing, and discussing modern (1991-Present) films about WWII produced in Russia and other post-Soviet states. Many of these films serve as vehicles for modern propaganda, packaged and marketed as historical truth. With proper historical context students will learn about the role of WWII in the modern Russian state-building narrative and how this narrative mirrors or clashes with historical fact.
