Redefining the Russian Literary Diaspora (1918-2018): National Tradition and Transnational Contexts
The goal of this collaborative interdisciplinary project is to reflect upon the creation of the global Russian diaspora over the last hundred years and to redefine academic approaches to the study of its cultural capital by integrating cutting-edge methods of translation and diaspora studies, postcolonial theory, and geopoetics. It aims to challenge the dominant critical reception of Russian diasporic production as an offshoot of the national tradition and metanarrative and to explore patterns of intellectual and artistic emancipation of the diasporic ‘periphery’ from the metropolitan ‘centre.’ Its ambition is to reorient the field of Russian diaspora studies from an excessive emphasis on dialogue with the homeland to an analysis of complex transnational flows and circulations that shape diasporic identities, discourses and cultural vocabularies in the process of migration and cross-cultural encounters. The project aims to elaborate a theoretical framework, specific methods, and taxonomies, and to define the explicit and implicit criteria of diasporic literature and specific patterns of constructing diasporic literary identities, applicable in any future investigation of diasporic cultural production well beyond the field of Russian Studies.
