Please join us for a seminar on contemporary political poetry in Russian with leading European, Russian, and US experts. Presentations will be in English and Russian. The seminar is organized by the Harriman Institute in collaboration with the DFG-Centre for Advanced Studies Russian-Language Poetry in Transition project.
Russian political poetry is back, and the spectrum of political subjects nowadays is broader than ever, including questions of gender and sexuality, and ethnic and religious identity. More than any other form of poetry, it explores participatory genres, merging verse with provocative performances.
