Gender and National Identity in Twentieth-Century Russian Culture
Edited by Helena Goscilo and Andrea Lanoux
"This excellent collection offers one of the first sustained discussions of the fertile intersection of gender and nation ... essential for any student of 20th-century Russian cultural history."—Michael Gorham, author of Speaking in Soviet Tongues
"Valuable ... All ten essays in the collection represent impressive and original scholarship, and there are some exceptionally interesting and well written contributions."—Canadian Slavonic Papers
"An important, well-organized, and focused collection of essays that explores the complex relationship of gender and national identity in Russia."—The Russian Review
Combining concepts and methodologies from anthropology, history, linguistics, literature, music, cultural studies, and film studies, this collection of ten original essays addresses issues crucial to gender and national identity in Russia from the October Revolution of 1917 to the present. Prefaced by an introduction on Russian cultural myths grounded in gender difference, the essays shed new light on such topics as national, cultural, and gender identity in the Russian language; typecasting of women revolutionaries; soviet masculinity in Stalin-era film; and prostitution during and after perestroika.
