An Academic Visit to Russia
Carroll, Joseph
Academic Questions, v18 n4 p54-58 Sep 2005
An American, invited to speak on aesthetics and creativity, came away from the academic conference in the city of Perm fascinated by the character of the Russians he met, but depressed at the shabbiness and the creativity-dispelling gracelessness of the proceedings. Lecturers had apparently become accustomed to going through the motions in mumbled monotone to the scarcely even perfunctory applause of minimal audiences. The locals weren't aware that anything was amiss, comments Joseph Carroll, among other observations about this conference, the country, and the people.
