Loyalty Through Betrayal: Us Versus Them in a Russian Context

The sense of belonging to a collective plays a much larger role in the construction of the individual’s self-conception for the average Russian than it does for the average American. Responsibility for achievement or failure is shared, and there is a greater belief in the power of fate. How has this collective spirit functioned in Russian society, in literature, culture, politics, and religion? And how does it affect Russian attitudes today?

Speakers:

Svetlana Kristal, Lecturer, Russian Program, Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures, SFSU

Krista Hanson, Professor in the Department of Foreign Languages, City College of San Francisco
