About the event

What are the connections between Russian political history and the body? If the body politic designed by Putin today is strictly masculine, patriarchal, and heterosexual, how does this stand in cultural and political contrast with previous eras, when expression of gender and sexual identity was welcomed as part of a revolutionary society? Join a discussion about the intersection of queer and transgender studies, Russian studies, and history, with Anastasia Kayiatos, Jonathan Flatley, and artist Yevgeniy Fiks, whose exhibition The Lenin Museum will be on view in the James Gallery at the Graduate Center.
