Abstract

This course, which culminates the core curriculum in Russian and World Literature, consists of three distinct portions. The first module will establish key theoretical concepts and methodologies in literary history and comparative literature, with the aim of reassessing and going beyond traditional perspectives. We will build on this foundation in the second and third modules, while focusing on two particularly rich, transnational historical movements: the “realism” of the nineteenth century and the “surrealism” that began in Paris in the 1920s. Throughout the course considerable emphasis will be placed on the interaction between literature and other artistic media, including music, painting, and cinema.
