LIT 71 - (LT) Russian Culture & Literature: Between East & West

Semester Hours: 3

Russia had stood at a crossroads in Eastern Europe between the influence of the Orient and Western Europe. As a consequence, the Russian identity is a curious mix of Eastern and Western influences. This course will present samplings from many aspects of Russian culture, including art, music, film, literature, language, religious practice, popular culture, customs and traditions, history, and the image of Russia in American culture. Our goal will be to comprehend how Russian culture has established itself between two extremes of East and West.

The course is open to all students regardless of level, and all materials will be read in English.
