Women fighters in eastern Ukraine

Post-Minsk, there's still no end in sight to war in eastern Ukraine. Women soldiers too continue to fight on the front, writes Katja Garmasch. Up until this month though, their rights still paled into insignificance besides those of their male equivalents. At least this much has changed. [ more ]

Anna Aslanyan, Stewart Home

Moving the goalposts

An interview with British conceptual artist and writer Stewart Home

Feuds, schisms and excommunications have littered Situationism's journey from its Parisian origins into Anglo-Saxon culture. Stewart Home recalls the history and politics of Situationism and its British pendant, psychogeography. [more]

Anna Aslanyan, Mavis Gallant

"Why did they need to chop down the trees?"

An interview with Mavis Gallant

As an ex patriot in Paris, Canadian novelist Mavis Gallant experienced May '68 first hand, keeping a diary of the events that was published two decades later. In interview with her Russian translator, she bemusedly recalls the revolutionary fervour of the day. [more]

Jochen Hellbeck

Everyday ideology: Life during Stalinism

Postmodernist historians of totalitarian societies underrate the role of ideology at the individual level, preferring a performative reading of subjectivity. This fails to explain why the Soviet and Nazi regimes generated absolute commitment, writes Jochen Hellbeck. [more]

05.10.2010


Timothy Snyder

Holocaust: The ignored reality

Auschwitz and the Gulag are generally taken to be adequate or even final symbols of the evil of mass slaughter. But they are only the beginning of knowledge, a hint of the true reckoning with the past still to come, writes Timothy Snyder. [more]

25.06.2012


Sergey Lukashevsky

A comment on Claus Leggewie's article

How would NGOs that promote democracy per se fit in to a system of democracy where coalitions representing specific publics compete for official status? [more]

01.06.2005


Boris Mezhuev

Transnationalization's dead ends

Is transnationalism premised on the politically correct precepts of western European liberalism? And might transnational NGOs become a way of laundering corporate cultural and political capital? [more]

01.06.2005


Valery Tishkov

An anthropology of NGOs

Organizations calling themselves "movements" are by no means always popular. Placing the legitimacy of the nation-state at the mercy of such ambiguous entitites would be ill-advised. [more]

01.06.2005


Volker Hage

Buried feelings

German authors' handling of the Allied bombing in World War II

W.G. Sebald claimed that the Allied bombing was hushed up in postwar German literature. Not entirely true, responds Volker Hage: there are a number of novels outside the canon in which the experience of the bombing comes to light. [more]

Russian content in a European form

The dialogue of cultures in music. [more]

31.05.2005


Claus Leggewie

Transnational movements and the question of democracy

Social movements can provide an early warning system to mainstream politics. But once institutionalized, their lack of democratic mandate raises problems of legitimacy. This paradox must be negotiated if democracy is to respond to the global situation. [more]

20.05.2005


Vladimir Malakhov

Racism and migrants

Russian society is deeply divided amongst "ethno-centric lines". Bureaucracy and the police possess intricate means with which to discriminate against immigrants whilst the media reinforces stereotypes about non-Slavic minorities. [more]

Mykola Riabchuk

Ukraine at the crossroads

Can a state based on blackmail be reformed?

What will it take to really change the Ukrainian political system? [more]

Il'ya Kukulin

The regulation of pain

Coping with traumatic experiences in Soviet war literature

Soviet writers' expression of existential insecurity caused by their experiences in World War II signalled a liberation from the censorship of the 1930s. But the Brezhnev regime put an end to that. Only since the 1990s have Russian writers been able to explore openly the subject of war. [more]

06.05.2005


Andreas Langenohl

State visits

Internationalized commemoration of WWII in Russia and Germany

European politicians attending the ceremonies in Moscow encountered a brand of patriotism unthinkable in western Europe. What does this say about the West's own traditions of commemoration? [more]

03.05.2005


Lev Gudkov

The fetters of victory

How the war provides Russia with its identity

The commemoration of victory in the "Great Patriotic War" serves the centralist and repressive social order imposed in the post-totalitarian culture and society under Vladimir Putin. Lev Gudkov desribes the taboos in Russia surrounding the underside of victory. [more]

Ales Debeljak

Elusive common dreams

The perils and hopes of a European identity

Western Europe lives like a family without feelings for the post-communist states on the same continent. A more diverse concept of Europe is needed for a European identity worthy of its name. [Italian version added] [more]

George Blecher

Notes from the Rubble

To describe as "conflicted" the political feelings of Americans these days is to make an almost comic understatement: everybody thinks everything simultaneously, writes George Blecher as he reflects on the atmosphere in the US after September 11th. [more]

Larry Wolff, Alexander Yanov

Is Russia a European country?

A correspondence

While Russia has always had a special relationship with Europe, is it marked by a "civilizational instability" and "incapacity for political modernisation" that fundamentally set it apart? [more]

Maya Turovskaya

The Soviet Middle Class

Maya Turovskaya examines what constituted the "Soviet middle class' survival kit". In a society in which even basic commodities had to be secured through a series of complex and lengthy exchanges, not luxury goods but the enjoyment of culture was at the core of the middle class identity. [more]

25.08.2003


Sergei Parkhomenko

The Middle Class: Expenditure and Self-Understanding

An Interview with Sergei Parkhomenko

Sergei Parkhomenko argues that a new middle class is emerging in Russia but its definition depends on much more than just economic factors. A changing self-perception plays a vital part in reshaping the economic and social structures of the Soviet Union. How will this affect the democratisation of the Russian society? [more]
