Irina Paperno "'Осада человека': The Anthropology of the Blockade Experience."
Focusing on Olga Freidenberg's blockade chronicle, "Osada cheloveka,"
this talk explores how the author acts in the capacity of an
anthropologist (ethnographer), making observations and generalizations
about the body, home, everyday practices and the working of power, in
the society at large and within the family.
