INTS 285 Putin's Russia and the Media


This course examines mainstream and independent media sources, literary works, and films in order to find the authentic Putin and dynamic contemporary Russia. Unraveling over a century of attempts by the West to penetrate and remake Russia, we will apply theoretical frameworks appropriate to the specific forms of communication and expression (journalism, literature, and film) in order to better understand the real, instead of parodied or demonized, president and the country he has steered since the beginning of the millennium. The course is the same as Russian 285.
