Last weekend, Pam Jordan and John McCannon represented the U of S at the National Convention of the American Association for the Advancement of Slavic Studies, held in Washington, DC. Pam presented a paper entitled “Legal Defenders or Passive Assistants to the Court? The Complex Political Identities of Russian Advocates after Stalin.” John commented on a panel and delivered his own paper, “Gateway to the East: Decorative Art and Orientalist Imagery in Moscow’s Kazan Railway Station.” Much to the delight of all conference-goers, baby Miranda came along as well, and narrowly missed being chosen to give the keynote address.
