Communicative History of Russia

History, as a discipline, is often understood as studying the history of facts. Let us step away from that conception and try to regard history as studying the history of connections, interconnections, relations, and interrelations. In fact, all classical literature of the 19th-20th centuries can be seen as dedicated to the solution of one global problem: do individuals build their own social relationships, or do social relations form the individual? Each proposition is as controversial as the other. And what about in reality? This is what we will discuss in the course, based on the examination of both literary works and the facts of Russian history. Today, when communicology is becoming a meaningful and sometimes crucial tool for understanding the present, an attempt to read and understand the historical through the prism of complex and often confusing social relationships cannot fail to be relevant.
