Associate Professor Sofya Khagi organized a forum on Russian author Victor Pelevin for the Slavic & East European Journal's fall 2018 issue. The forum includes manuscripts by Sofya Khagi, Keith Livers, and Julia Vaingurt, which arose out of a panel at the 2016 ASEEES conference, “Twenty Years after Chapaev and the Void.” The year of 2016 marked the twentieth anniversary since the publication of Chapaev i pustota—the book that brought Pelevin to the limelight. Khagi also contributed an introduction to the forum (co-authored with Tatiana Filimonova), and the article "Alternative Historical Imagination in Viktor Pelevin." All of these items may be found in SEEJ volume 62 number 3.
