\"Technologies of the Self\" as a Category of Analysis for Yuzhinski Lane Circle’s Transgressive Practices
Cultural Studies
(Bachelor’s programme)
2019
Consideration of the case of the Yuzhinsky circle using materials from personal testimonies of participants and eyewitnesses will make it possible to view the esoteric underground as a constructed space that allows the participants to fulfill their need for forming their own selves outside the Soviet authoritarian regime. The findings of the preliminary study suggest that transgressive practices (alcohol addiction, experiences with coming to enlightenment through the knowledge of darkness and evil, exclusion of oneself from society by assuming the role of insane) were an attempt to construct oneself outside the state power system. The choice of religious preferences, the technician himself, the forms of constructing his own identity was also due to the desire to build his own narrative, able to resist the prevailing irrational order.
