The Summer 2021 issue of Harriman Magazine features a cover story by Svetlana Borodina (Mellon Teaching Fellow at the Harriman Institute) on the changing definition of inklyuziya (inclusion), which until recently referred mainly to the domain of disability inclusion programs in Russia. Two profiles focus on Harriman alumni from the 21st century. Tinatin Japaridze (MARS-REERS 2019) is writing a book that examines Stalin's political legacy, while Sanjay Sethi (Harriman Certificate 2007) helped put together the first-ever human rights report about artistic repression in Eastern and Central Europe.
Other pieces include an examination of Alexei Navalny's legacy by former Harriman Postdoctoral Research Fellow (2016-19) Yana Gorokhovskaia and Padma Desai's account of her travels in the USSR in 1964. An excerpt from Maria Stepanova's In Memory of Memory, shortlisted for the International Book Prize, rounds out the features. The In Memoriam section remembers two friends and colleagues, Stephen F. Cohen and Jamey Gambrell.
