EUST2605 - Europe: Literature and Dictatorship

Semester 2, 2011  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: Peter Morgan

Description

Europe: Literature and Dictatorship focuses on aspects of literature, culture, and the public sphere in the twentieth-century socialist states of Central and Eastern Europe. Literature played an important role - both clandestinely and as a public institution - under socialism. However literary texts cannot be separated from wider issues of politics, culture, and society. Hence attention will be paid to the role of the intelligentsias, to censorship, and to problems of dissidence and free expression in authoritarian, closed, and totalitarian societies.
