Overview

Russian language students apply new media to literary classics

Students in Tom Beyer's 19th Century Russian Literature class recently completed projects using new media. These included a Google Earth Tour of Dostoevsky's Crime and Punishment, a series of podcasts on iTunes called Turgenev Talk, a blog for Anna Karenina to pour her heart out, a Facebook page for the Russian writer Lermontov, and a MySpace page devoted to the Underground Man, from Dostoevsky's Notes from the Underground.
