Symposium on Russian Modernism *Russian Modernism: Methods and Meaning in the Post-Soviet Era,* April 9-10, 1999, is the first in a series of symposia planned by the Society of Historians of East European and Russian Art and Architecture (SHERA), and is co-sponsored by the Kennan Institute for Advanced Russian Studies of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars and the Department of Art History and Archaeology at the University of Maryland, College Park. GOAL: The event*s aim is to assess critical issues and the state of current research in the field. It is organized around questions of methodology in response to shifts in the study of Russian modernism in the visual arts and design practices that have followed the recent political changes in the former USSR. The themes proposed by the speakers reconsider the debates and practices of Russian modernism through the prism of its historiography.
