RUST103 PO - Dostoevsky and Popular Culture

When Offered: Last offered fall 2018.
Instructor(s): K. Klioutchkine
Credit: 1

Media culture, youth movement, burgeoning city life, technological progress and acute political developments, such as nihilism, anarchism and terrorism–these circumstances brought to life Dostoevsky’s masterpieces. Popular culture fashioned the rich context for Dostoevsky’s existential questions about love, life and death. By placing Notes from Underground, Crime and Punishment, The Idiot and The Possessed in the context of their time, remarkably similar to our own, the course highlights the links between Dostoevsky’s novels and our experience today. All readings in English. (Russian in Translation)
