Syllabus
Introduction into Russian history and culture from the end of the Nineteenth century to the beginning of the 1920ies.
The course deals with different aspects of the history of Russian culture from the end of the Nineteenth century to the beginning of the 1920ies. One of the issues will also be the description of the social, political, cultural and literary life of the Russian emigration of the "first wave" (between the wars).
Particular attention will be paid on the most important political, social, philosophical, religious and esthetic concepts, which were characteristic for the different periods of Russian culture. The most important cultural concepts which dominated the successive historical epochs will be introduced and analysed on the background of the main events of political history. The principal cultural concepts are above all expressed in written literature, therefore we experience them through the study of literary sources. Thus, the story of literature and language constitutes a privileged field of research in order to scrutinize these concepts.
