IWH Special Event: Notes from Underground with Anna Barker

Old Capitol Museum Supreme Court Chamber


Join us for Russian tea, desserts and deep discussion at this one day event with Anna Barker at the Old Capitol Museum Supreme Court Chamber. The writing and publication of Notes from Underground was a monumental event in world literature and a turning point in Dostoevsky's life and career. Many of the questions he ponders in Notes from Underground are unresolvable and belong to what are called the "cursed questions" in nineteenth century Russian literature. Who are we and how do we define ourselves? Do we live in the underground of our own consciousness and how honest are we to ourselves about our deepest and darkest convictions? 

Prepare to have your convictions undermined by arguments you cannot refute. Prepare to question everything. Long live the underground! Devil take the underground!
