In a journey through literature and film of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries from Ukraine, Belarus, Russia, the Czech Republic, and beyond, we will explore ways in which writers and filmmakers as well as ordinary people have borne witness to war, political repression, revolution, and ecological catastrophe. We will consider what bearing witness is and what it can do, and investigate the various strategies and choices entailed in giving expression to individual and collective experience under conditions of violence, upheaval, political repression, and censorship. In English.
