Courses: Focus:Russian Dissident Memoir (RUSSB130001)
Class Number: 1695
This is a half semester focus course. This course explores Russian dissident memoirs and considers these works as a form of testimonial writing by those who were exiled - physically or socially - during times of heavy media and literary censorship. Class discussions will also examine the ways this body of work served to bear witness on behalf of those who operated outside ('vnye') of society and acted as an alternative justice system, condemning or justifying 'criminal' behavior. Half semester Focus course.
