Yana Meerzon publishes Performing Nationalism in Russia

Yana Meerzon published Performing Nationalism in Russia with Cambridge University Press.

Following Homi Bhabha’s prompt on reading nationalism as a set of discursive and performative practices, book focuses on the cultural geography of today’s Russia and examines a range of performative strategies used by the Russian state to uphold its nationalist project. Simultaneously, it maps artistic strategies of resistance to the ideology of nationalism as employed by both state-funded and independent theatre companies, via new dramaturgies, performance practices and strategies of storytelling.
