kultura – Russian Cultural Review

From 2005 to 2009, the Research Centre for East European Studies at the University of Bremen published an online periodical titled kultura—Russian Cultural Review. A total of 28 issues came out, each of them in both German and English. I was actively involved in the project as a member of kultura’s advisory board, but also as a translator and copy editor. I also guest edited several issues.

kultura’s website did not survive a software update. Therefore, with kind permission from the Research Centre for East European Studies, I am making the entire run of kultura available via this page. There are also plans to store them permanently in the OstDok repository.

The issues I put together as guest editor are marked with an asterisk (*). Other issues to which I contributed essays are marked with a silcrow (§).
