Core Course: RUSS 2221, Modern Russian Culture, Spring 2013

RUSS 2221: Modern Russian Culture. The Soviet Union no longer exists, but modern Russian culture and society are inevitably connected to the experience of communism and revolution. This course will address major themes in Russian and Soviet culture, including the roles of the intellectual and the arts under a totalitarian regime. We will attempt to understand how past events affect social and cultural forces in Russia today. This course fills the core curriculum for “historical context.”
