   Abstract = {Investigating the genesis of the prosecuted “crimes” and
             implied sins of the female performing group Pussy Riot,the
             most famous Russian feminist collective to date, the essays
             in Transgressive Women in Modern Russian and East European
             Cultures: From the Bad to Blasphemous examine what
             constitutes bad social and political behavior for women in
             Russia, Poland, and the Balkans, and how and to what effect
             female performers, activists, and fictional characters have
             indulged in such behavior. The chapters in this edited
             collection argue against the popular perceptions of Slavic
             cultures as overwhelmingly patriarchal and Slavic women as
             complicit in their own repression, contextualizing
             proto-feminist and feminist transgressive acts in these
             cultures. Each essay offers a close reading of the
             transgressive texts that women authored or in which they
             figured, showing how they navigated, targeted, and, in some
             cases, co-opted these obstacles in their bid for agency and
             power. Topics include studies of how female performers in
             Poland and Russia were licensed to be bad (for effective
             comedy and popular/box office appeal), analyses of how women
             in film and fiction dare sacrilegious behavior in their
             prescribed roles as daughters and mothers, and examples of
             feminist political subversion through social activism and
             performance art.},

   Author = {B. Holmgren and Chatterjee, C and Holmgren, B},
   Title = {Americans Experience Russia: Encountering the Enigma, 1917
             to the Present},
   Pages = {1-232},
   Publisher = {Routledge},
   Year = {2013},
   Month = {January},

   Abstract = {Americans Experience Russia analyzes how American scholars,
             journalists, and artists envisioned, experienced, and
             interpreted Russia/the Soviet Union over the last century.
             While many histories of diplomatic, economic, and
             intellectual connections between the United States and the
             Soviet Union can be found, none has yet examined how
             Americans’ encounters with Russian/Soviet society shaped
             their representations of a Russian/Soviet ‘other’ and
             its relationship with an American ‘west.' The essays in
             this volume critically engage with postcolonial theories
             which posit that a self-valorizing, unmediated west dictated
             the colonial encounter, repressing native voices that must
             be recovered. Unlike western imperialists and their colonial
             subjects, Americans and Russians long co-existed in a tense
             parity, regarding each other as other-than-European equals,
             sometime cultural role models, temporary allies, and
             political antagonists. In examining the fiction, film,
             journalism, treatises, and histories Americans produced out
             of their ‘Russian experience, ' the contributors to this
             volume closely analyze these texts, locate them in their
             sociopolitical context, and gauge how their producers’
             profession, politics, gender, class, and interaction with
             native Russian interpreters conditioned their authored
             responses to Russian/Soviet reality. The volume also
             explores the blurred boundaries between national identities
             and representations of self/other after the Soviet Union’s
             fall.},

   Abstract = {Over two decades have passed since the fall of the Berlin
             Wall and the dismemberment of the Soviet Union, dramatic
             events marking the end of a sometimes terrifying, mainly
             stultifying, Cold War between two global superpowers. The
             Soviet Union’s rapid disintegration into Russia and
             breakaway republics in the west and the east, coupled with
             the import of shock therapy capitalism, heralded the United
             States as the victor. Yet the regional hot wars and economic
             crises that have rocked the United States since the Cold War
             rendered any declaration of American triumph premature and
             simplistic. The troubled aftermath of the Cold War
             demonstrates how important it is to dismantle the binary
             oppositions that American national agencies honed to
             demonize the Soviet enemy-evil empire versus bastion of
             freedom, totalitarianism versus liberal democracy,
             centralized command economy versus the free
             market.},

             introduces and then gives a transcription of an interview
             with Anna Mieszkowska, an archivist at the Polish Academy of
             Sciences who specializes in collecting materials relating to
             Polish cabaret of the interwar and wartime era. The
             introduction justifies the historical and cultural
             importance of her work and outlines the materials housed in
             this unique archive and how they are organized. In the
             interview, Mieszkowska chronicles her efforts to document
             prewar and émigré cabaret. She began her research
             tentatively in the 1980s, despite the inattention given by
             Polish theater studies of that time to cabaret and official
             disapproval. Mieszkowska’s research and related travels
             became easier after the fall of communism, but more urgent
             due to the advancing age of surviving performers. The
             interview also touches on Mieszkowska’s personal
             engagement with her subjects and their surviving friends and
             family, the place of cabaret in Polish culture, and
             comparison of Polish cabaret traditions with those of other
             countries, ending with an appended list of significant
             cabaret artists.</jats:p>},

   Abstract = {In the turbulent context of interwar Polish politics, a
             period bookended by the right-wing nationalists' repression
             of an ethnically heterogeneous state, several popular
             high-quality cabarets persisted in Warsaw even as they
             provoked and defied the nationalists' harsh criticism. In
             their best, most influential incarnation, Qui pro Quo
             (1919-1932) and its successors, these literary cabarets
             violated the right's value system through their shows'
             insistent metropolitan focus, their stars' role-modeling of
             immoral behavior and parodic impersonation, and their
             companies' explicitly Jewish-Gentile collaboration. In the
             community of the cabaret, which was even more bohemian and
             déclassé than that of the legitimate theater, the social
             and ethnic antagonisms of everyday Warsaw society mattered
             relatively little. Writers and players bonded with each
             other, above all, in furious pursuit of fun, fortune,
             celebrity, artistic kudos, and putting on a hit show. This
             analysis details how the contents and stars of Qui pro Quo
             challenged right-wing values. Its shows advertised the
             capital as a sumptuous metropolis as well as a home to an
             eccentric array of plebeian and underworld types, including
             variations on the cwaniak warszawski enacted by comedian
             Adolf Dymsza. Its chief female stars-Zula Pogorzelska, Mira
             Zimińska, and Hanna Ordonówna-incarnated big-city glamour
             and sexual emancipation. Its recurring Jewish
             characters-Józef Urstein's Pikuś and Kazimierz Krukowski's
             Lopek-functioned as modern-day Warsaw's everymen,
             beleaguered and bedazzled as they assimilated to city life.
             Qui pro Quo's popular defense against an exclusionary
             nationalism showcased collaborative artistry and diverse,
             charismatic stars. © 2012 Sage Publications.},

   Abstract = {When the United States and the Soviet Union joined forces in
             World War II, Hollywood undertook an international mission
             of daunting complexity. Invaded by the Germans in June 1941,
             the Soviet Union ceased being the Third Reich’s willing
             partner under the terms of the Molotov-Ribbentrop pact and
             became the Allies’ most important, neediest ally,
             suffering the brunt of the Germans’ attack along the
             war’s lone European front. 1 Because this
             enemy-turned-ally remained suspect to the American public,
             the Roosevelt administration, through its new Office of War
             Information, appealed to the film industry to improve
             Russia’s image, “to humanize [its people] and whitewash
             Stalinism.” 2 After decades of caricaturing or demonizing
             the Soviet Union, Hollywood somehow had to sell American
             moviegoers a sympathetic and compelling Soviet
             experience.},

             Soviet and post-Soviet history through the voices and
             stories of Russian characters who seem strangely familiar
             and achingly human. Like Dziga Vertov (1896-1954), a
             brilliant Soviet pioneer in documentary film, Goldovskaya is
             intent on capturing the ineffable essence of life as it
             unfolds or is relived through memory and commemoration.
             Unlike Vertov, however, Goldovskaya anchors her visual
             frames in recognizable plots and familiar narrative patterns
             that foreground emotional identification with the lives of
             her subjects.},

   Abstract = {When Helena Modrzejewska, Poland's premier actress, quit the
             Warsaw Imperial Theaters in 1876 for a year's leave of
             absence in the United States, she secretly planned an
             English-language debut in San Francisco, a sophisticated yet
             less demanding theatre town than New York. Her triumph under
             the Americanized name of Modjeska at the California Theater
             in August 1877 led to almost three decades of American
             stardom and critical acclaim as the greatest American
             Shakespearean actress of her day. Yet American and Polish
             theatre historians have yet to analyze how this accomplished
             player managed a bi-national career up until her death in
             1909. Modjeska did not abandon Poland for America, but
             discovered that the United States best served her
             professional and patriotic aims, garnering her greater fame
             and fortune as an English-language performer and enabling
             her national service in advertising Polish artistic genius
             abroad and underwriting Polish theatre at home. This essay
             explores how Modjeska retained and enhanced her Polish
             stardom by distancing herself from her homeland and
             perfecting both overseas and incountry modes of playing the
             faithful patriot. © 2010 by The Johns Hopkins University

   Abstract = {This essay investigates an instance of the ambiguous overlap
             between “artful” nonfiction and historical fiction –
             specifically, how the nonfictional Memories and Impressions
             of the great Polish/American actress Helena Modjeska
             (1840-1909) in fact furnished a quite sophisticated story
             that novelist Susan Sontag (1933-2004) in large part claimed
             to create in her National Book Award-winning novel, In
             America (2000). Sontag argues that the actress’s memoir
             functions as a mere “source” undeserving of
             acknowledgment and ripe for creative manipulation. As she
             remarks in one inteview: “I don’t consider Modjeska’s
             memoirs the work of a writer. So what interests me is the
             transformation. She’s the source of my character and you
             can use a sentence that’s exactly the same because it is
             from her words.” Indeed, Sontag resists characterizing her
             work as historical fiction, despite the fact that she
             exploit the outline of Modjeska’s biography and quotes
             directly from the actress’s letters. I rebut Sontag’s
             devaluation with a general consideration of the actor’s
             memoir as literary genre, an overview of Modjeska’s
             ambition and evolution as a writer, and an analysis of
             Modjeska’s roleplaying, modes of narration, and
             dramatically shaped plot in Memories and Impressions. In
             lieu of dismissing Modjeska as source, I read her as author,
             and posit Modjeska’s remarkably enduring influence on
             biographers and fiction writers fascinated with her life
             story (Sontag is the latest and perhaps the most famous of
             the actress’s posthumous fans), an influence Modjeska
             effects through complex self-characterization (the sensitive
             maiden/ambitious, iron-willed star), shifts between
             enlightened frame narrator and the quoted confessions of her
             letters and diary, and the suspenseful stories (all with
             happy ends) of her professional debuts and bold adventure
             overseas. In ironic consequence, the writer Sontag’s
             award-winning non-historical fiction redounds to the actress
             Modjeska’s writing credit.},

             1974, soon after his expulsion from the Soviet Union, the
             literary scholar Andrei Siniavskii once again deferred to
             his created alter ego, the writer Abram Terts, to pass
             provocative judgment on the Soviet literary scene. The essay
             ascribed to Terts, “Literaturnyi protsess v Rossii,”
             reviews unofficial Soviet literature to highlight its
             artistic (rather than moral) appeal. As Terts reads it, the
             punitive context of this literature—established by Stalin
             and enforced to a less rigorous extent through the Leonid
             Brezhnev era—inadvertently guaranteed art and the fate of
             the artist richness and power: <jats:disp-quote><jats:p>At
             this moment the fate of the Russian writer has become the
             most intriguing, the most fruitful literary topic in the
             whole world; he is either being imprisoned, pilloried,
             internally exiled, or simply kicked out. The writer nowadays
             is walking a knife-edge; but unlike the old days, when
             writers were simply eliminated one after another, he now
             derives pleasure and moral satisfaction from this curious
             pastime. The writer is now someone to be reckoned with. And
             all the attempts to make him see reason, to terrorize or
             crush him, to corrupt or liquidate him, only raise his
             literary achievement to higher and higher
             levels.</jats:p></jats:disp-quote></jats:p>},
