SUBMIT AN ARTICLE TO ULBANDUS
CURRENT CALL FOR PAPERS:
ULBANDUS XVII - A Culture of Institutions / Institutions of Culture
Submission deadline: August 1, 2015.
Cultural production in Russia, Eastern Europe, and Eurasia has often been defined by the complex interactions between artists and the institutions that support and often seek to control them. From Pushkin’s fraught relationship with tsarist censorship to the peredvizhniki’s defiant break with the Imperial Academy of the Arts, from the Soviet state’s uneasy reception of the Nobel Prize to the market forces of the post-socialist publishing industry, institutions have loomed large over the cultural landscape of the region.
This issue of Ulbandus seeks to explore the various ties between artists and institutions, broadly construed, and the effect of these relationships on the ideology, distribution, and consumption of art and culture in Russia, Eastern Europe and Eurasia. We are seeking submissions on topics including, but not limited to:
Ulbandus is a peer-reviewed journal catalogued on JSTOR and the MLA International Bibliography. It is edited and published by the graduate students at Columbia University’s Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures.
