Panel abstract: Changing Images and Subjectivities

The changing situation in Russia as well the transformations in the international situation (between East and West) have brought about, and been represented by new cultural trends that motivate the recodification of traditional and well-known discourses and images, such as Mother Russia etc. The papers will discuss the meanings and modalities resonating with the dynamic altering cultural processes which are represented by contemporary images in the media discourse, by cultural ways of imagining nature, and by therapeutic technologies, which, as becomes obvious, generate complex cultural and political meanings and subjectivities. The papers suggest that we need to problematize the narrow conception of politics and resistance in order to better understand the dynamics of the contemporary world.
