How does representation of the occult differ across time, such as in pre- and post-Soviet works? How are ghosts, alternative science, paganism, and the supernatural associated with themes and concepts in new Russian texts or new approaches to older works? Potential topics include but are not limited to the intersection of occultism with fantasy, science fiction, visual arts, politics, espionage, or satire.
