A War in the Distance Reader

26.00 euros

The full-fledged Russian invasion of Ukraine is a wake-up call. There is no way to ignore the deep seismic waves it has spread beyond the region and throughout the world; its impact will be epoch-making and global. A War in the Distance, the 2022 edition of steirischer herbst, looked at what Russia’s war of aggression might mean in a postfascist, postimperial, neoliberal Europe. Combining essays and shorter literary texts, the festival’s reader delves into the histories it activates, and the futures it might decide.

With contributions by Keti Chukhrov, Maja Haderlap, Dana Kavelina, Olexii Kuchanskyi, Michael Marder, Boris Nikitin, Martin Pollack, Syargey Prylutsky, Galina Rymbu, Marcia Sá Cavalcante Schuback, Ostap Slyvynsky, and Oxana Timofeeva
