Chicago: Temporary Services, October 2014

The Midwest, and Chicago in particular is the home to many people with Eastern European ancestory. Kaitlin Kostus and eight contributors take a home-town look at the Eastern European diaspora. From Latvia to Serbia, from Ukrainian Village to Polish Village, the people are chanting "Koshka!"
From Kaitlin Kostus:
Taking my hometown of Chicago as inspiration, this issue explores the Eastern European diasporas of Chicago and the surrounding Midwest US, with a focus on personal histories, cultural communities, mythology amongst family lines, and sense of belonging.
