Dr. Anna Glazova

The DFG Center for Advanced Studies “Russian-Language Poetry in Transition” (FOR 2603) cordially invites you to a live lecture by Dr. Anna Glazova, entitled “Current Trends and Internet Communities in Russian-language Literature.” The lecture will be held in Russian and will be streamed live via Zoom. Please register by e-mail with our coordinator Katja Baharova (baharova@uni-trier.de) no later than May 26, 2020, to receive the access data.

About the lecture:

In Russian-language literary circles, the growing possibilities of online publishing have sparked a large variety of independent Internet magazines and crowd-funded platforms, such as Sigma, Artikulatia, and LiTERRAtura, to name just a few. This development has resulted in an ongoing diversification of publishing practices and the creation of communities based on different principles and goals. Some of these communities focus on aesthetics, others emphasize politics, and yet others try to combine both. This presentation will provide an overview of these resources, freely available to the reader, along with some commentary on their contents and editing policies. Moreover, a brief history of Internet publishing on “Runet” will be outlined. Dr. Glazova’s talk will be followed by a reading from her own poetry. Both the talk and the reading will be conducted in Russian.
