Welcome!

My name is Irina Aristarkhova and I consider myself to be a Russian feminist. What exactly do I mean by that? To answer, I am blogging here about various aspects of Soviet and Post-Soviet culture, politics, and sexuality. I was born in Moscow in 1969, and have lived in Russia, Singapore, and the USA. My writing will reflect this experience of having three homes across the world.  My professional profile and texts can be found here: http://www-personal.umich.edu/~airina/ and here: http://art-design.umich.edu/people/detail/irina_aristarkhova

Posts are as frequent as events that I think are worth commenting on and ideas worth sharing with you.
