Seminar "'Folklore arrested'"

On December 1 at 12.00 Alexandra Arkhipova (Centre for Typological and Semiotic Folklore Studies, Russian State University for the Humanities, Moscow) will give a lecture entitled as “'Folklore arrested'”: court persecution for jokes, songs and rumors in the Soviet Union and today's Russia”.
The talk will focus on relations between political folklore and the power (from 1922 till 2015) – how secret police started to record political folklore in 1929, what had happened with uncensored folklore during the period of Great Terror and later, how this situation was changed after Stalin's death, and what is going now, when several people are in the middle of court persecution because of reposting visual folklore in Internet.
As usually, the seminar will take place in the Estonian Literature Museum, Tartu, Vanemuise, 42 (Fourth Floor Seminar Room).
