On being a Snob

It’s been a while since I found time to update this blog, mostly due to this move to Brandenburg (as chaotic as any major move), as well as due to the fact that my new research project is running into interesting archival complications. I promise to discuss them in due course.

Meanwhile, an offer to post a piece on Snob has arrived, and was gladly accepted — because a text has been in the making all this time, while I processed the postdoc year spent in Russia. That processing is still not over (will it ever be quite over?), but some contemplations did take shape.

In Russian. Монохром на фоне войны

(Here are articles on Snob itself in The New Yorker and The Wall Street Journal.)
