LTRU 150 (B) - RUSSIAN CULTURE
In his course, we will trace the ways in which Russians have used humor to grapple with the "big ideas" and to challenge important notions of authority and literary institutions. We will touch upon puppet theater, carnival celebrations and will focus on famous humorists such as Chekhov, Zoshchenko, Il'f and Petrov and will study in depth authors of the late Soviet (e.g., Erofeev, Dovlatov) and post-Soviet era (e.g., Pelevin), Soviet jokes (anekdoty), internet memes, and more.
