Harriman Magazine, Fall 2018

Friday, October 19, 2018

The Fall 2018 issue of Harriman Magazine is dedicated to our ongoing oral history project, with an article and book excerpts from three of our narrators (interviewees)—Alexander Motyl, Colette Shulman, and Grace Kennan Warnecke—and a general overview of the project and its goals. Another theme is the work of Novaya Gazeta correspondent Elena Kostyuchenko, our 2018 Paul Klebnikov Russian Civil Society Fellow. Kostyuchenko has earned a reputation as one of Russia's boldest reporters, covering topics ranging from government corruption to real estate crime; drug addiction; the invasion of Crimea; and the government-sponsored abductions of gay people in Chechnya. In this issue, you can read Kostyuchenko's story about the squatters in Moscow's Hovrino Abandoned Hospital [HBZ], translated by Columbia Slavic alumna, Bela Shayevich, with photos by Moscow-based photographer Anna Artemeva, and a profile about Kostyuchenko's life and work. In addition, don't miss Elidor Mëhilli's photo essay, which emerged from his award-winning book, From Stalin to Mao: Albania and the Socialist World.  You can pick up an issue in our office or read the PDF here.
