I often teach on-line about media and culture-related issues, and have a passion for literary translation, also acting as Editor at Large for Central Asia at Asymptote Journal.
As this year marks the 30th anniversary of the end of the USSR, one of the places I grew up, I am focusing on reflecting on this life-changing event.
