Methodological Workshop of a Historian Begins in 2019

What does a historian do while investigating the past? What are the scope and boundaries of his freedom of action? Does he need imagination and why? Can he use not only his research but personal life experience in the scientific activities?

Igor Narsky, Professor of Department of Russian and Foreign History of the Institute of Social Sciences and Humanities, will share his thoughts on these and other issues. The following books written by him and released last year will become the basis for discussion:

  • Narsky I. Party Taught the People to Dance, Choreographers Helped, and What Did It Come of It: The Cultural History of Soviet Amateur Dance. (M .: Novoje Literaturnoje Obozrenije, 2018). (Как партия народ танцевать учила, как балетмейстеры ей помогали, и что из этого вышло: Культурная история советской танцевальной самодеятельности.)
  • Narskij I. Vivere nella catastrofe: La vita quotidiana nella regione degli Urali 1917 – 1922. (Roma, 2018). (Жизнь в катастрофе: Будни населения Урала в 1917 – 1922 гг.)
  • Igor Narskij (Hg.) Hochkultur für das Volk? Literatur, Kunst und Musik in der Sowjetunionaus kulturgeschichtlicher Perspektive (Berlin/Boston: Gruyter Oldenbourg, 2018). 312 S. (Высокая культура для народа? Литература, изобразительное искусство и музыка из культурно-исторической перспективы)

Everyone is welcome! The event will take place in room 442 of the University Main Building of SUSU; the beginning is on February 20, 2019 at 15.30.

Event date: 
Wednesday, 20 February, 2019 - 15:30
