Description: What features of the science fiction genre made it so popular as a medium for social criticism in the Soviet Union? Starting with Zamyatin’s We, a 1920s dystopian novel that inspired Orwell’s 1984, we will explore how Soviet writers and filmmakers responded to the political, social, and cultural shifts of the 20th century.
