Book Launch: Russian Cuisine in Exile
December 12, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Join translators Angela Brintlinger (UW-Madison Slavic PhD alumna) and Thomas Feerick for the launch of the book Russian Cuisine in Exile. The discussion will be moderated by Joe Peschio, associate professor of foreign languages and literature at University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
Russian Cuisine in Exile brings the essays of Pyotr Vail and Alexander Genis, originally written in the mid-1980s, to an English-speaking audience. These essays—beloved by Russians in the U.S., the worldwide Russian diaspora, and citizens of post-Soviet Russia—narrate everyday experiences and re-imagine the identities of immigrants through their engagement with Russian cuisine.
