Stalin Liberated. Or How StoryDoula Got Her Groove Back

StoryDoula’s been away awhile but she finally got her groove back. I  just returned from my first intensive coursework session for my PhD in Media and Communications from European Graduate School in Saas Fee, Switzerland.

Below you’ll find an interview with EGS cohort/pal Maia Gianakos, a curator who lives in Berlin.  The topic was our EGS Poetry and Philosophy course led by the extraordinary Judith Balso.  The conversation captures an emotional moment of discovery Maia and I shared after Judith presented breathtaking insight and challenge around Russian poet Osip Mandelstam and his poem “Ode to Stalin”.  Thank you Maia.  Thank you, Judith.
