I have a special relationship to the essay genre, and Vulf is simply awe

We have always had a special relationship in our family: Parents believed and taught me to believe in his supernatural power. In childhood and early youth I was a winding reader. I still remember how to stroll at school to read the "war and peace". And there were periods when I could not read anything week. Everything somehow changed by itself when I am unexpected for everyone and decided to go to Podfil RGGU. I wore full books of books from the Noginsk City Library, where weekly went to my urban trip to the tram. I read Marlo, Shakespeare, Heine, Novisa, Hoffman and all-all that could find, following the regiments, no matter how trite, in alphabetical order.

We lived in a two-bedroom apartment: parents, grandmother, and my sister and a huge Erdelterrier, presented by the older sister after the exit "Adventures of electronics". Mom was a dressmaker, and in one of the rooms there was something like a workshop – an angle in which the sewing machine was stood with a ironing board. Mom sewed day, and I put out my precious library findings at night and read something wrote out. At some point, the mother’s throat, who dug the floor and which I, confess, hated sweeping, and my lines (read and written) will go off, and I will start doing what I do now.

It seems that I have done a choice in favor of philology, thanks to how nor Pafosno it sounds, the sonnets of Shakespeare, who first read the transfer of Marshak, and then in the original, and realized that Shakespeare Marshak is one story, and Shakespeare, or more precisely Shakespeare ( or older marlowe, or ben johnson, or …) – completely different. I became interested in dealing with language features.

The next round – the transition from philology to fashion-logic – occurred after the protection of the candidate thesis, however, in graduate school, I began to be interested in the literary life, social and economic context, in which literature lived, and smoothly from Pantheons and canons and literary fashion moved to Study of fashion phenomenon in all of its diversity. In many ways, by the way, this transition helped me to make the book of John Harvey "People in Black", one of the strongest, in my opinion, works about fashion, and it is written as a philologist. Harvey helped me reconcile with my scientific windiness.

In foreign languages, I read constantly. Strictly speaking, "Fashion Studs" (English. fashion studies) as a scientific discipline originated in the English-speaking context, and the bulk of the profile of literature written by and written in English. Since the language of the new discipline is in Russia in its formative stages and not to all we have already found a "good" word, often catch myself thinking that it is easier to talk / write / read / think about it in English, but I’m sure it’s temporary phenomenon.

I read constantly, truth, more at work, that is, articles and books that are dedicated to fashion, costume, Cultural Studies. It is very rare to find time to read something lying outside the sphere of professional needs. Stack of books (real and imaginary), laid down for later, to "read on pensions", grows with every day. Journals (Journals, not Magazines) I always read. In addition, I try to track all the novelties in Russian, English and other available languages ​​- usually I go to the websites of publishers who specialize in "My" literature and collect a crop.
