What is queer in Russia? Is it the space for self-advocacy of those who still do not have the voice in liberal politics, or is it a cold war instrument? How can working with historical memory affect the integration of queer-feminist optics into the post-Soviet academy? Is “Soviet feminism” anyhow connected with contemporary Russian politics and why?

Nadia Plungian is a curator, artist, art historian and feminist/LGBT-activist from Moscow. She will talk about exhibitions of feminist art that took place over the past few years and about the controversies and discussions that they caused. We will discuss the current state of the feminism in Russia, and the issues that activists are currently facing.

This talk is part of the Slavonic Studies series.
