IMAGES >> SVETLANA BOYM (1959–2015)

The photographs in this issue are the work of the late Svetlana Boym: professor of Slavic languages and literatures and comparative literature at Harvard University, novelist, playwright, artist, cherished teacher and colleague. In the place of our usual artist’s statement and biography, we offer instead a tribute essay by Cristina Vatulescu.

Many of Svetlana’s former colleagues, students, and friends helped locate, label, and scan the photographs that fill the pages of this issue. The editors of diacritics are grateful for the enthusiastic support and technical assistance of many: Tamar Abramov, Nicole Burgoyne, Julia Chadaga, David Damrosch, Anne Lounsbery, and Serge Ryappo. And our special thanks to Yury and Musa Goldberg, Svetlana’s parents.

With the photographs in this issue, we do our best to honor Svetlana Boym’s memory, with a keen awareness that we have embarked upon what she referred to as “the imperfect process of remembrance.”
