Bakhtin, the Russian Formalists, and Cultural Semiotics

The seminar surveys (in English) three influential schools of 20th-century Russian textual and cultural criticism: the Russian Formalists (1920s); Mikhail Bakhtin (1920s-70s), and the cultural semiotics of Yury Lotman and the Tartu School (1960s-80s). Readings will include both primary and secondary texts; major essays will be read in conjunction with literature that illustrates and tests the critical approach.
