Book launch: The Cultural is Political: Intersections of Russian Art and State Politics
Welcome to the launch of Slavica Bergensia, volume 13: The Cultural is Political: Intersections of Russian Art and State Politics, edited by Irina Anisimova and Ingunn Lunde (2020).
In the last decade, culture and art have become arenas of forceful political controversy in Russia. Bringing together an international group of scholars from various disciplines – Russian media studies, the history of ideas, political science, literature and gender studies – this book combines assessments of Russian cultural policies, political ideologies and intellectual trends with case studies on Russian literature, film, rap and memory culture.
