The 1980s witnessed the ascendency of Russian women in multiple
spheres of artistic creation, including literature, film, and
painting. This volume may thus be said to engage not only women's
artistic production but, indeed, the best and most colourful of
recent Russian culture. Treating contemporary Russian women's
creativity, it approaches women's texts, films, and canvasses from
a range of perspectives, from anti-gendered to feminist. Some of
the essays introduce writers not previously well studied, others
challenge conventional interpretations and assumptions, while still
others yield original viewpoints through novel juxtapositions. In
addition to offering insights into the various artists under
analysis, the essays map the wide terrain of issues and
methodologies proliferating in cultural criticism today, and mirror
the diversity that is one of the most appealing features of women's
creativity in contemporary Russia.
