Event: The Role of the Public Intellectual in Today’s Russia


The Role of the Public Intellectual in Today’s Russia

 

Intellectuals have played a central role in Soviet and Russian societies. Novelists, poets, and artists had a sense of higher social mission and were viewed as “the conscience of the nation.” In today’s Russia, the demand for public intellectuals who can serve as a moral compass seems to be changing. Celebrated Russian writer Lyudmila Ulitskaya will discuss the role of the intelligentsia in contemporary Russian society.

 

This event will be in Russian with simultaneous translation.
