This course examines pivotal archetypes of Russian civilization that reflect Russia's past, demarcate its present, and constrict its future. We will focus on the canonic historical monuments of Russia, such as the Kremlin of Moscow and the downtown of St. Petersburg. Starting with the representation of these landmarks in the media, we will explore them in depth by reading conflicting historical narratives and cultural histories and eventually deconstruct their cultural message and value. By the end of the course, students will be familiar with the Eastern Orthodox Christianity rites and able to identify and discuss the most common artifacts of Russian civilization.
