Example 2: Soviet and Post-Soviet consumption: material culture and social life (interpreting messages and attracting ideas)
  • Ideas learned and discussed:
  • Material and “spiritual” culture: descriptive, symbolic and normative interpretations
  • Material culture and the home as “indicators” of social conditions.
  • Culture, morality, ideology and consumption: everyday narratives and visual representations
  • Consumption, ideology and everyday life: strategies of resistance and acceptance.
  • Possessions as carriers of identity and status messages: helpful or misleading?
  • Etc, etc, etc.

In my teaching, I use 2 movies for this purpose:

  • “GOODBYE, Lenin”
  • (Germany, Wolfgang Becker (2003))
  • “Old-style New Year” (Staryi Novyi God)
  • (USSR, Naum Ardashnikov, Oleg Yefremov (1980))

conclusions to use or not to use
Conclusions: to use or not to use?
  • So far as culture is becoming more and more visual, using visuals in teaching it is an important learning tool, and it DOES allow a lot.
  • However, it is important for a teacher to do loads of work for choosing the proper materials, and integrating them into the whole logic of the course.
  • It is also important to keep the balance between entertainment and work, watching and reading, commonsense and scientific knowledge, etc.
  • How to do it?
