Lunch & Learn: THE CASE OF THE STALIN MONUMENT IN PRAGUE
January 30, 2015 @ 12:15 pm - 1:15 pm
Hana Pichova specializes in twentieth century Czech prose. Most of her published work focuses on literature in exile, specifically on memory and nostalgia. Recently she published a book, The Case of the Missing Statue: A Historical and Literary Study of the Stalin Monument in Prague, in which she documents the history of one of the largest Stalin statues ever built and explores narrative accounts of this event as meditations on the function of monumentality, aesthetics, and power.
