The future of nostalgia by Svetlana Boym( )

18 editions published between 2001 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 1,467 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Why is it that the age of globalization is accompanied by a no less global epidemic of nostalgia? What happens to Old World memories in a New World order? Do we even know what we are nostalgic for?" "Combining philosophical essay, aesthetic analysis and personal memoir, Boym explores the spaces of collective nostalgia, national myths and the personal stories of exiles. She guides us through the ruins and construction sites of post-communist cities such as St. Petersburg, Moscow and Berlin, explores the imagined homelands of writers and artists like Vladimir Nabokov, Joseph Brodsky and Ilya Kabakov and examines the souvenir collections of ordinary immigrants. In short, Boym has written a new kind of encyclopedic meditation that captures the mysteries and rhythms of longing, a calendar that schedules out of time daydreaming and a treatise that diagnoses our global epidemic of longing and its antidotes."--Jacket

4 editions published in 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This catalogue takes a look at the theme of space exploration. Encompassing the concept of infinite potential, as well as historical outer-space successes and failures, it features installations, paintings, works on paper, and sound and video works made by Laurie Anderson, Nina Katchadourian, Oleg Kulik, Julian LaVerdiere, Aleksandra Mir and Damian Ortega, among others, and investigates global attitudes from the time the Soviets launched Sputnik to the explosions of the American space shuttles in 1986 and 2003. While the featured artworks are united by the theme of outer space, they also invite consideration of the technological, environmental and sociopolitical forces affecting life on Earth today

Sexuality and the body in Russian culture by Sexuality and the body in Russian culture( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Russians have their own, particular erotic culture, it's just that we don't know much about it." With these words, a contemporary Russian sexologist and psychologist sums both the premise and purpose of this volume to demonstrate that sexuality and the body in Russian culture is a valid, distinct, and complex subject; to explore why so little is known about it, compared with the practices and discourses of sexuality in Western countries; and to examine what we do know. The twelve essays in this volume break new ground in showing the ways in which ideas about sexuality, gender, and the body have shaped and been shaped by Russian literature, history, art, and philosophy from the medieval period to the present day. Because sexual practices and images of the body have received scant treatment by Russian scholars until very recently, the introduction investigates why Russian culture has treated questions of sexuality and the body with reticence, traces how this reticence itself became a myth of Russian culture, and provides background and historical context. The essays draw on a wide range of approaches - from postmodern and Foucault-influenced theories to more traditional historical and philological readings - but all are informed by feminist theory and practice in studying how gender has shaped the representations of bodies and sexual pleasures in Russia. Among the topics covered are: the language of sexual taboo in the medieval period, the figure of the prostitute in early Soviet writing, travel narratives about eighteenth-century Russian manners, the trial of the artist Natalia Goncharova for pornography, the critical reception accorded lesbian poet Sofia Parnok, the lyrics of motherhood and sexuality by Maria Shkapskaya, the misogyny of the popular puppet spectacle Petrushka, representations of the maternal breast in nineteenth-century literature, and the contemporary writer Tatiana Tolstaya's use of gender stereotypes. Familiar writers, such as Tolstoy, Chekhov, Tsvetaeva, Berdyaev, and Platonov, appear in a new light when seen through the prism of gender and sexuality
