What are Russian postsocialist perceptions of Western social and gender theories and methods of conducting empirical research?
Tatiana Barchunova, Associate Professor of Philosophy at Novosibirsk State University in Western Siberia, will discuss the challenge of translating the English-language gender discourse into Russian. In her presentation, she will track the distortion of contemporary texts and examine the misrepresentation of ideas within them.
Her research and publications center on topics of feminism, gender stereotypes, and broader gender relations in post-Soviet society and the media, and her current interests include religious and consumption networks and leisure activities including Internet dating.
