Alexey Vdovin's Talk at Yale University

Professor Vdovin to Give a Talk at Yale Conference "The Russian Century"

On September 30 - October1, Yale University hosted a big international conference "The Russian Century: The Literary, Visual, and Performing Arts, 1801-1917"

Inspired by this renewed interest in the nineteenth century and the general shift toward destabilizing disciplinary and historiographic borders, this conference, under the guidance of Molly Brunson, Associate Professor of Slavic Languages and Literatures, brought together prominent senior scholars and emerging junior scholars from Russia, Europe, and the U.S., and from a wide range of fields (language and literature, musicology, art and architecture history, performance studies and drama history). Roughly 20 speakers were invited, with the intention of maximizing dialogue between Russian specialists and their American and European counterparts, and creating potential for conversation and collaboration among an international collective of historians of the arts in its broadest sense. 

Alexey Vdovin's talk was entitled "Photographic Machine" vs. Hegelian Aesthetics: Nikolai Uspensky's Stories, William Carrick's Photos, and the Ethnographic Representation of Russian Peasants".

The program is available here.
