This volume may thus be said to engage not only womens artistic production but, indeed, the best and most colourful of recent Russian culture. Treating contemporary Russian womens creativity, it approaches womens 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 womens creativity in contemporary Russia.
