Slavic Languages and Literature Professor Harriet Murav, University of Ilinois at Urbana-Champaign, and Halls Visiting Scholar presents her new project, "Archive of Violence: Neighbors, Creatures, and the Witness Literature of the Russian Civil War." It explores the strangeness of neighborly relations, enacted both in violence and reconciliation and examines both kinds of relations in one of the most important witness texts of the time, Itsik Kipnis's 1926 Yiddish novel Months and Days.
