We examine the rebels, deviants, dissidents and loners of Russian literature, and the interchange between art and politics, from the Russian Futurists to Pussy Riot. All of our literature and culture courses are taught in translation.
Learn the contemporary Russian language and the fundamentals of Russian grammar and syntax. Make progress in listening comprehension, speaking, reading, writing and cultural competence.
Delve into stories of rebels, deviants, dissidents, loners and losers in 19th- and 20th-century Russian fiction, by writers who imagine themselves every bit as bizarre as their heroes.
Study the efforts of Russian poets over the past century to invigorate and enrich their poetic languages as they’ve engaged with other modes of creativity and changing historical circumstances.
