Comparing American college students at Sewanee: The University of the South to those at Kazan Federal University: Naberezhnye Chelny Institute, this article unravels the lack of solidarity among women in each of these seemingly unrelated groups. Written in Russian.

A series titled "Seeing Russia," these four pieces are windows into daily Russian life.


Topics: Birch Juice, The "Detroit" of Russia, Russian Pizza, and Soviet Rock

Front porch culture is examined and compared to similar community interactions in other places


​​​​With research from Mississippi as backdrop, the Steel Magnolia ideal as it applies to post-Soviet grandmothers in Russia highlights the similar burdens women face in the South and in Russia -- and how oppressive systems manifest. 

Structured, co-written, edited, and copy edited by Mississippi Modern's Vice President + founding board member Hanna Miller, this 46-page catalog highlights the majority of creative spaces in Mississippi by dividing the state into its four federal congressional districts. Inside, there is information about how to plug into local government and sustain arts communities, about prominent living artists from the state, and about how to apply the Mississippi Modern approach to your community, may you live in Mississippi or not. Hanna's project Mississippi Heard is featured in a 16-page spread as photographs +  journal entries documenting impressions from a month-long train ride across Russia and a 6-week walk across the state of Mississippi.

This catalog is a resource brought to you by the non-profit art collective Mississippi Modern, Inc.
