History through Literature and Movies
During the course, we muse upon the interconnectedness of human fates, the crucial moments of our history as the humanity. We do not bother ourselves with dates and trends; rather, we look at historic events through the eyes of their witnesses. Books and movies reviving the spirit of different époques help us to do that. We compare Russian, Chinese, and Western movies and texts to research the way views and values influence the lives of people in different cultures.
