Gabriella Safran: Recording Russia

Literature and Culture Seminar
Event Format
In person
CGIS South, S450, 1730 Cambridge Street

Bringing together intellectual history and literary analysis, linguistic anthropology, and sound and media studies, Gabriella Safran's new book Recording Russia looks at how writers, folklorists, and linguists such as Turgenev, Dostoevsky, and Vladimir Dahl, as well as foreign visitors, thought about the possibilities and meanings of listening to and repeating other people's words.

Because we hope to serve lunch after the seminar, we’d be grateful if you could register if you plan to attend. That way, we know how many people to prepare for!
