Victor Serge: The Novels of Resistance
Tue, October 11, 2016 @ 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM$95 – $125
A 10-session class with Richard Greeman
Tuesdays, 5:30 to 7:30 pm
October 11 – December 13
This Fall we plan to read three novels by the Franco-Russian writer and revolutionary Victor Serge. The period covered (1933-1941) begins with Serge’s arrest by the GPU and deportation to the Urals (the setting of the novel Midnight in the Century), continues through the Moscow Trials and the Civil War in Spain (the background to Serge’s fictional Case of Comrade Tulayev), and ends with the Fall of France (experienced by Serge and fictionalized in The Long Dusk). The group is open to all, and no prerequisite familiarity with Serge is expected.
Richard Greeman is best known for his studies and translations of novelist and revolutionary Victor Serge (1890-1947). Greeman also writes regularly about politics, international class struggles and revolutionary theory. Co-founder of the Praxis Research and Education Center in Moscow, and director of the International Victor Serge Foundation, Greeman splits his time between Montpellier, France and New York City.
