RUSS-474 Alternative History: 20th Century & Today
Offered academic year 2012-2013
In this course, we will read several works of fiction dating from Russia's 20th century, and a little of the 21st, which attempt to rewrite history, contemporaneous, or nearly so, with the time the works were written. Paradoxically, the way historical facts are distorted in these works seems to reveal something about their true nature or implications. A Midterm essay and a Final paper are required, plus also a framework for class participation, to be discussed during the first class.
Course taught in English.
Credits: 3
Prerequisites: None
