We in the context. World literature from Baudelaire to Bob Dylan

The lecture project for teachers of world literature ‘We in the context’ logically continues the tendency started by the course on the Ukrainian classics from Skovoroda to Stus ‘Defined and Redefined’. We invited professional literary critics not to limit their audience to university students but to share their knowledge with teachers (not only world literature teachers but also Ukrainian literature ones and those who teach history turned out to be interested!).

This is a presentation in the popular form of aspects, the coverage of which does not always make textbooks. Lectures on world literature cover the canon from the ‘damned poets’ to Nobel laureates of the last few years.

In addition, there are many parallels between the works of foreign and Ukrainian authors (such as Baudelaire and Rylsky, Mykola Kulish and Brecht). A separate point is the lecture on the tradition of Ukrainian translation – and also the information about what factors influence whether the work will be added to the ‘golden list’ of the best books, as well as the school curriculum.

Each of ten lectures is created by author; it is unique every time, because the lecturer collaborates with the audience, responds to it and, accordingly, is not limited to the text prepared, but continues his or her monologue according to the reaction of the listeners, their level of preparation, questions and answers during the presentation of the material.

Video recordings of lectures are available in the open access – and therefore, accessible to professional audiences and everyone who wants to learn new things regardless of geography and time of day.
