Course contents summary
The city that flies. Urbanisation in Russian culture.
With the founding of Saint Petersburg in the eighteenth century, the city in Russian culture has become a laboratory of myths, literary images and utopian aspirations, a veritable text that has been developing over the centuries into the hallucinatory dystopian distortions of the twentieth century.
The bibliography will be progressively defined during the course, in part due to the contribution of the students, who are invited to adopt an actively participatory and personal approach. The bibliography will be published and updated on the course web page which can be found in the category of Foreign Languages and Literatures of the dokeos platform http://corsi.unipr.it.
