This post builds on the research article “Repossession: Notes on Restoration and Redemption in Ukraine's Western Borderland,” which was published in the May 2008 issue of the Society’s peer-reviewed journal, Cultural Anthropology.
Previously, Cultural Anthropology has published essays on the subjects of post-socialism. Paul Manning's essay "Rose-Colored Glasses? Color Revolutions and Cartoon Chaos in Postsocialist Georgia" (2007), Ralph Litzinger's essay "Memory Work: Reconstituting the Ethnic in Post-Mao China" (1998), and Jessica Winegar's essay "Cultural Sovereignty in a Global Art Economy: Egyptian Cultural Policy and the New Western Interest in Art from the Middle East" (2006) are good references.
Cultural Anthropology has also published essays on minor political traditions. Jack Kugelmass's essay "Bloogy Memories: Encoutnering the Past in Contemporary Poland" (1995), Alejandro Lugo's essay "Cultural Anthropology and Reproduction in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico: Tropes at Play among Maquiladora Workers" (1990), and Teresa Caldeira's essay "The Art of Being Indirect: Talking about Politics in Brazil" (1988) are good references on the subject.
