LIT 074 - (LT) Russian Jewish Literature

Semester Hours: 3
Periodically
We will study literary texts originally written in Russian by Jewish writers from the 1890s in the Russian empire up to the diaspora of the present day. The traumas of Stalin’s purges, the second World War, the Cold War, immigration of Russian Jews to the West during the 1970s, and the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 contributed to a revival of Jewish self-awareness in Russian literature, and to an even greater diversity of styles and subjects in the work of Russian Jewish authors.  The course will take into account the aesthetic as well as political evolution of the tradition up to the present day.
