Join us for an evening with Alexander Nakhimovsky who will speak about the language of the Soviet peasantry and what it reveals of their world view. All through the Soviet period up to the 1980s, the peasantry was one of the most censored topics in scholarly and political discourse. Only in the 1990s were the constraints lifted. Scores of researchers--linguists, ethnographers, historians, and sociologists—at once started looking for, and recording, peasants who remembered pre-kolkhoz life and language. Alexander Nakhimovsky has a forthcoming book on the language and history of the Russian peasantry. This event is organised by Pushkin Club and all are welcome.
