“Police gets a call-out to a lonely hotel in the Alps. When an officer gets to the hotel everything seems to be all right. Suddenly, an avalanche cuts them out from the rest of the world, and strange things are going to happen.”
As Covid-19 continues to wreak havoc on loftily laid university plans, we seek to imagine new futures where life is possible no matter the circumstances. Here at Yale Slavic, we wondered how we could expand traditional geographic and disciplinary bounds of our regional studies, proving their significance to world proceedings, and simultaneously provide fertile ground for new perspectives to help cope with our ongoing pandemic realities. The answer – to utilize the veritable treasure trove of wild and imaginary worlds concocted by the Soviets. We hope to establish the Slavic relevance for the genre of Science Fiction at large, and hold space to reflect on our own possible futures as we look at humans who not so long ago imagined theirs.
