Russian Walls: Rise and Fall
Where does "city" begin? In Russia, with its vast spaces, ethnic and cultural diversity, process of urban development was long and fundamentally difficult. The specificity of historical Russian urbanization is creation of Kremlins, protected cities-fortresses, and unique forms of development of Russian living space. In the framework of the Summer School “Russian Walls: rise and fall”, foreign students will travel from Saint Petersburg – “residence city-fortress”, to the medieval Kremlin cities of Moscow, Suzdal and Vladimir, to Ekaterinburg – “factory city-fortress”. Connections and contradictions with the surrounding landscape, the development of modern Russian urbanism, and derivation of the concept of civil society and identity from the urban community - these and other topics are to be analyzed on the way with help of knowledgeable University professors and guides.
