Time: 20:00 - 20:45
At a time when the Russian government is seeking to create a patriotic, homogenous version of national history, Maria Stepanova takes a completely different direction in her latest book. Through everyday object and experiences, she explores her own Russo-Jewish family history.
Stepanova meets Ingunn Lunde, a professor of Russian, for a conversation about the way the individual’s experience collides with the state’s monopolisation of the collective memory.
The conversation will be in English.
