OVERVIEW

Emel’jan Ivanovič Pugačëv’s revolt

AIMS AND CONTENT

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

This course will examine Pugačëv’s revolt with the aim of providing students with an appropriate interpretative key to the phenomenon of rebellion and its relationship with religions and popular culture.  

TEACHING METHODS

Lectures 

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

By adopting a methodology grounded in the political, cultural, social and religious history of eighteenth-century Russia, the course will introduce and analyze the last  large-scale revolt which shook the Russian Empire between 1773 and 1775. The lectures will move from the study of myths and collective imagination to  the analysis of the political and social reasons which prompted the revolt. In this way the course will concurrently throw light upon the phenomenon of rebellion, on the antique roots of popular culture and on the profound traits of a world subject to turbulent changes.
