Introduction: Contextual Fragments: Cultural excursions in Moscow: Arrival

Roll, Serafima
January 1998
Contextualizing Transition: Interviews with Contemporary Russian;1998, p7
An introduction to the book, Contextualizing Transition: Interviews with Contemporary Russian Writers & Critics, is presented, featuring some social changes that have occurred in Moscow, Russia from 1995 to 1996. A visitor begins to be exposed to these changes on arriving at Sheremetevo airport, where passengers frequently hear announcements in English about the arrivals and departures of foreign flights. The airport rules are now the same with the West. Russians are dressed in Western-style clothing. This social condition perhaps fascinates anyone entering an unexplored personal territory circumscribed by unfamiliar cultural landscapes.
