This image shows Cassandra, from the shoulders up. She is wearing a black raincoat and smiling. Her hair is blowing out from under a black cap. A rainy yellow-green landscape with small grey trees and white sky are in the background.I am a cultural and medical anthropologist, social theorist, and multimedia storyteller. Much of my work focuses on Russia and the Russian-speaking former Soviet Union. My approach is informed by global justice movements and experiences of daily life especially in relation to disability, gender, and sexuality.
