Tragedies Of The Holodomor: Give Me Bread Or Give Me Freedom, David Kirichenko 2017 University of Washington

Tragedies Of The Holodomor: Give Me Bread Or Give Me Freedom, David Kirichenko

Access*: Interdisciplinary Journal of Student Research and Scholarship

To effectively analyze the dimensions of the Holodomor, this research paper provides the historical overview of the Ukrainian state and nationalist developments. The overview shows the rise of Ukrainian nationalism and later, the problem that it would pose for Soviet leaders. Besieged by national tragedies and centuries of conflict, the Ukrainian people had emerged as the Ukrainian People’s Republic and embraced independence during the chaos of WWI. The Ukrainian government would lose to the Soviet Union and be incorporated as part of the Soviet Socialist Republic. Once Stalin consolidated power, he sought to industrialize the Soviet Union. However, since ...


Around Sonja: On The First Russian Translation, Victor Fet 2017 Marshall University

Around Sonja: On The First Russian Translation, Victor Fet

Victor Fet

The first Russian translation of Wonderland was published anonymously in 1879 as Sonja v tsarstvie diva (Sonja in a Kingdom of Wonder, hereinafter referred to as Sonja).1 Deep Victorian mysteries surround it. Its translator remains unknown—but a hint from Lewis Carroll himself leads one to Russian aristocrats, patrons of the arts, and famous writers. Its readership is undocumented, but the faces of children who most likely first read this book are still well known in Russia today, having been painted by the most famous nineteenth-century Russian artists. Further, as one looks carefully at the text itself, one finds ...

Beheading First: On Nabokov's Translation Of Lewis Carroll, Victor Fet 2017 Marshall University

Beheading First: On Nabokov's Translation Of Lewis Carroll, Victor Fet

Victor Fet

Anya v Strane chudes, young Nabokov’s 1923 Russian translation of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, contains an intentionally shifted statement “beheading first, sentence later” compared to Lewis Carroll’s “sentence first, verdict later”. The shift is fitting for the 1920s children émigré audience.

For Narrativity: How Creating Narratives Structures Experience And Self, Natallia Stelmak Schabner 2017 City University of New York (CUNY)

For Narrativity: How Creating Narratives Structures Experience And Self, Natallia Stelmak Schabner

All Graduate Works by Year: Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

This dissertation responds to the challenge to narrativity posed by Galen Strawson in “Against Narrativity,” where he claims that not everyone is Narrative by nature and that there is no reason to be. I make my claim “For Narrativity” as a mental process of form finding and coherence seeking over time that is an inherent mental activity and essential for experience of one’s Self. I make my case through examinations of our experience of time, our use of language, how we plan, and our sense of Self. In the first chapter, I show that considering Narrativity as viewing life ...

The Research and Scholarship Symposium

This research focuses on Russian musical life in the Soviet Era, beginning in the Bolshevik Revolution in 1917, to the death of the Joseph Stalin in 1953.

Depictions Of Fear In Lev Tolstoy's Sevastopol Sketches And Stephen Crane's The Red Badge Of Courage, Ralph Willard Schusler Jr 2017 Florida International University

Depictions Of Fear In Lev Tolstoy's Sevastopol Sketches And Stephen Crane's The Red Badge Of Courage, Ralph Willard Schusler Jr

FIU Electronic Theses and Dissertations

The purpose of this thesis was to examine and compare two iconoclastic works dealing with war as experienced by combatants. So much of modern war fiction takes this perspective that one is hard pressed to imagine a time when such was not the case; the watershed was marked in the above named works by the aforementioned writers, which, and who, were first in putting readers inside the heads of common soldiers facing mortal danger. These pioneering authors opened the door to modernist writing about boundary situations involving existential threat, as well as the psychological reactions they evoke – especially fear. Depicting ...


Zamyatin's Reception Of Wells's Fiction, Natalia Aksenova, Marina Khatyamova 2017 National Research Tomsk Polytechnic University

Zamyatin's Reception Of Wells's Fiction, Natalia Aksenova, Marina Khatyamova

CLCWeb: Comparative Literature and Culture

In their article "Zamyatin's Reception of Well's Fiction," Natalia Aksenova and Marina Albertovna Khatyamova examine several essays written by Yevgeny Zamyatin on Herbert Wells's texts and analyse Zamyatin's reception of Wells's work. Wells's ironic mindset, plot-driven writings, and attraction to parody drew Zamyatin's attention. Zamyatin felt a rapport with the central role of plot dynamics, unorthodox socialist politics, and dystopian tendencies in Wells's fiction. Discussions of the artistic qualities of Wells's writings allow Zamyatin to expound upon his own aesthetic program, known as "synthetism." In these discussions Zamyatin interprets Wells's ...

Criticism And Complaint In Soldiers’ Narratives Of The Chechen Wars, Courtney Silver 2017 University of Colorado at Boulder

Criticism And Complaint In Soldiers’ Narratives Of The Chechen Wars, Courtney Silver

Germanic and Slavic Languages and Literatures Graduate Theses & Dissertations

The ideological vacuum left by the absence of a strong state in the post-Soviet structure as well as pre-existing poor conditions in the Russian Army led to significant losses in men, morale, and public trust during the first and second Chechen Wars. The Russian soldiers who fought in these wars were faced with the lack of a framework with which to interpret their service and participation in military action that often perpetuated human rights abuses. The meaninglessness of the conflicts was compounded by the absence of public support for veterans as they returned home. This led to a need to ...
