Changes in the Institutional Field of «Women's Writing» in Contemporary Russia

Student: Mariia Gavrilova

Supervisor: Irina Lagutina

Faculty: Faculty of Humanities

Educational Programme: Cultural Studies (Bachelor)

Year of Graduation: 2020

The focus of my work is on the process of institutionalization of women's writing in contemporary Russia, which is significant for sociocultural and gender studies. I analyze how the cultural transfer of new genres for Russian literature, such as autofiction and theory-fiction, and how new types of authorship and communities in the literary field arise. The time frame for the work is from the mid-2010s to the present. The focus of my research is on the creative writing courses for women Write like a grrrl, and No Kidding Press, a publishing house of women's literature. Considering imbrications and cross-breeding in Russian-language texts, I come to the conclusion about the connection between cultural transfer and the institutionalization of women's writing: the experience of other cultures forms and consolidates new local cultural patterns.
