Marsha Kinder (Project Director: October 2005 to November 2008)
Russian Modernism and Its International Dimensions, Experimental On-Line College Courseware

The development of online teaching materials on Russian Modernism for use in courses nationwide.

Focusing on Modernity in general and Russian Modernism in particular, this project brings together three leading Russian studies scholars (USC’s John Bowlt, Berkeley’s Olga Matich, and Chicago’s Yuri Tsivian) to develop electronic teaching materials for use in a variety of college courses nationwide. The courseware features three interwoven components: a searchable archive of annotated multimedia materials; interactive lectures individually authored by leading scholars, with challenging assignments; and an electronic role-playing game called “Montage” that immerses students within historical scenes from the period. After being tested at the three participating universities, the courseware will be disseminated as free open-source software.
