UO Library Event: Two Russian Writers Speak on Literature in Totalitarian Society
Three discussions will take place at 4:00 p.m on the following days-Friday, October 3; Wednesday, October 8th; Friday, October 10th
Two leading voices in Russian literature will make public presentations in October on topics related to Russia’s literary landscape, past and present.
On Friday, October 3, at 4 p.m. in Knight Library Browsing Room, Ivan Akhmetev, a renowned Russian poet and laureate of the Andrei Bely Prize for Outstanding Contributions to Russian Literature, will present a lecture on government suppression of Soviet-era literature. In his talk, entitled “Russian Poetry at the End of the Soviet Empire,” Akhmetev will explore the phenomenon of the “deep underground,”the authors who were suppressed by the government because of the non-traditional nature of the form and ideas of their verses.
On Wednesday, October 8, at 4 p.m. in Knight Library Browsing Room, Tatiana Neshumova, a poet and literary critic who has devoted most of her research to Russian Silver Age literature, will discuss “‘Inner’ Emigration: Emigrating without Crossing Borders.” Her talk will focus on the life and works of Russian writers V. Malakhieva-Mirovich, D. Usov, and E. Arkhippov.
On Friday, October 10, at 4 p.m. in Knight Library Browsing Room, Akhmetev and Neshumova will make a joint presentation entitled “The Life and Work of the Russian Poets of the 21st Century.” The two will present a poetry reading following the talk, and a reception will close the event.
All lectures are free and open to the public. The talks are sponsored by the University of Oregon Libraries, Oregon Humanities Center, Office of International Affairs Global Studies Institute, and Russian, East European, and Eurasian Studies.
