This course will explore Russia’s encounter with the Other, as represented in travelogues, memoirs, poetry, novels, and films. It will look at both Russia’s own Orient--such as Georgia, Chechnya, and Central Asia--and the Orient outside Russia’s borders, in countries like Iran, and compare the perception of the Orient in Russian sources with the perception of Russian and Western cultures by the “Orientals” themselves. While discussing political, social and ideological issues, such as the radicalization of Islam in the Caucasus during and after the Russian conquest, or the unveiling of Muslim women in post revolutionary Central Asia, we will also pay close attention to the aesthetic forms used in the representation of the Other in different genres of literature and film. All reading will be in English, and there are no prerequisites for taking this course.
