1) 09:00 – 09:50 Uhr: Stephanie Sandler (Boston, MA): Russia Will Be Free: Recent Poems by Russian Women
Russian poetry has a long history of political poetry, but recent poems by women take on gender- and sexual-orientation-based discrimination and harassment, topics long passed over in silence in Russian public life. They challenge any legacy that poets speak in concert with the ambitions of the Russian state or serve ideological projects, thus opening out new avenues for poetic free speech. This lecture argues that more than any other rubric of poetry in the contemporary period, the poetry of ethics and politics has been revolutionized by the work of women. It focuses on the work of Elena Fanailova, Galina Rymbu, Oksana Vasiakina, and Lida Yusupova. They break new ground in promoting conversation as a pathway toward democratic freedom and in seeking a philosophical and historical basis for free individual utterance (Fanailova and Rymbu). They use legal documents to expose the failures of the state to respond to sexual violence against women and gay people and then sing with the voice of the ancient Furies of the harms women have endured (Yusupova and Vasiakina). These projects are separable and each poet is to be respected and read on her own terms, but taken together, they offer us a glimmer of what a free Russia might look like for persons of all genders and sexual orientations.
2) 09:50 – 10:40 Uhr: Mark Lipovetsky (Boulder, CO): Still Alive? Neo-Romanticism in the 20th-century Poetry and Today
Neo-Romanticism has become one the most influential, albeit not recognized as such, trends in Russian poetry of the 20th century. In the first part of my paper I will attempt to isolate the aesthetic core of poetic Neo-Romanticism that can be traced in the works of such dissimilar poets as Nikolai Gumilev and Aleksandr Vertinsky, Eduard Bagritsky and Boris Slutsky, Bulat Okudzhava and Vladimir Vysotsky. In the second part of the paper I will focus on what can be defined as “dialogues with Neo-Romanticism”, or Neo-Romanticism 2.0 in contemporary poetry as exemplified by Maria Stepanova, Andrei Rodionov, Sergei Zhadan, among others.
