Abstract

The “Voices” section in Apparatus serves as a venue for a wide range of critical reflections and responses. The positions adopted or views expressed are not constrained by the traditional formalities of academic writing. The contributions may take the form of critical exegesis, polemic, journalistic and/or diaristic reflection, or personal (confessional) response. The principle that unites them is (relative) brevity in terms of length and concentration of focus. The contributors in question were among a number of academics, researchers, and cultural commentators invited by the editors of Apparatus for their responses to DAU after the panel discussions of the project hosted on 7 December 2020 and 26 January 2021 by the Russian Cinema Research Group at University College London, on 23 September 2020 by the Harriman Institute at Columbia University, on 15 January 2021 by the European University at St. Petersburg.
