Changing Paradigms & Alternatives in the XXI Century:
Russian Language, Literature and Culture

 

International Online Conference

November 23-24, 2020
12:00 (IST)

Moving on from the XX to the XXI century, one was clear that we, once again, are living in a world of changed paradigms in all spheres. The impact of the same was visible even before we bade a farewell to the previous century that witnessed systemic changes all over the world.  The most noteworthy being the one that led to the fall of the former Soviet Union and set the ball rolling for other countries of that block. It needs to be emphasized that the fall of the communist regimes was also accompanied by vanishing of the ‘welfare states’ in the non-communist block of countries.

Thus, stage was set for the complete take-over by the ‘free-market’ forces. Many things changed – the way we lived and the way we thought, the way we interacted, communicated and the way we expressed ourselves! Starting from the mid-2000s our lives became more and more globalized, digitalized and homogenized.

The impact of these changes was palpably felt on all aspects of life including literature, language and cultures of the ever-changing societies. The claims of ‘end of the ideology’ phase of the end of the XX century also resulted in the claims of ‘end of the book’ debate in the early XXI century. Since the end of the 1980s, the rapid change in Russian language has become a cause of anxiety for many.  Experts and commoners, alike, were lamenting the loss, the mutilation of the ‘Russian speech’, pronouncing even death of the Russian language etc.

Russian language, literature and culture negotiated the changed scenario in its own inimitable way. These changes pose substantial challenges in terms of comprehension, as well as, pedagogy. We are already two decades old into the new millennium and the time to comprehend these changes has come.

The proposed online conference is designed to create space for experts, teachers, learners and research scholars for introspection to enhance our collective understanding, as well as, innovative prognoses in order to explore the multiple facets of an alternative thought.

The scholars, specialists, teachers, research scholars of Russian studies from India, Russia and other countries are invited to participate in the conference.
