Pre-requisites: RUS105, RUS106

Two-year RUS post A-level with results of RUS105/106 no lower than 65

Aims/Description: This module provides both a broad survey of the main trends of contemporary Russian culture and an in-depth analysis of the forces and ideologies that helped shape these trends. Module will focus on contemporary Russian fiction, film, art and popular culture. From perestroika on, Russian popular culture has gone through an enormous upheaval, thanks to the collapse of censorship, the pressures of market forces, and a flood of cultural imports from Europe and the United States. This module looks at the last two decades of Russian culture in the twentieth and early twentieth-first century, paying particular attention to the themes and problems that are most prominent. Taught in Russian.
