RUSS 1660 S01 [CRN: 25053]

The course explores the role of the body and sexuality in 20th-century Russian literature, art, film, and everyday life, covering the sexual revolution of the 1920s, the mass spectacles of the Stalinist period, and the prominent role of sexuality and the body in post-Soviet literature, film, and mass culture. We will focus in particular on the question of how artistic representations of, and reflections on, the body and sexuality, affected social and political revolutions throughout contemporary Russian history.
