Maya Vinokour works on Russian literature and cultural history from the late nineteenth century to the present, with interests spanning Soviet labor culture, science fiction and film, and post-Soviet media. Her book project, Work Flows: Stalinist Liquids in Russian Labor Culture, investigates the metaphor of flow as a central figure in Russian labor discourse since 1870. She has written on contemporary Russian politics and culture for the NYU Jordan Center’s All the Russias’ Blog, which she edits, and for the Los Angeles Review of BooksCurrently, she and several collaborators are creating a bilingual, public-facing multimedia sourcebook of the post-Soviet 1990s, which charts the rise and fall of Russia’s only independent public sphere to date. She is co-editor (with Ainsley Morse and Maria Vassileva) and -translator of Found Life: Poems, Stories, Comics, a Play, and An Interview (Columbia University Press, 2017), a collected volume by the contemporary fiction author and Runet pioneer Linor Goralik. At the IPK, she co-organizes the Working Group on the Global New Right with Leif Weatherby.
