■Special Lecture: Чернобыль как национальная тема белорусской литуратуры◆◇◆

 

 Day & Time: 17:00-18:30 Monday 12 November 2018

 Contact: Koshino (gkoshino@slav.hokudai.ac.jp)

Abstract: Чернобыльская катастрофа несет в себе множество неразгаданных смыслов: технологических, нравственных, политических, исторических, мировоззренческих. Их совокупность фокусируется в изначальной трагичности самой белорусской истории. Именно поэтому Чернобыль, прежде всего, должен быть осмыслен как катастрофа гуманитарная, что в свою очередь усиливает ответственность белорусской литературы, которая утвердила себя в ХХ веке в качестве ведущей формы национального сознания.
