Los Cuadernos de Julia is an Arts and Culture blog that came into being on August 24th, 2006. The author was then based in the UK but since then has moved back to her home country, Russia. LCJ was conceived as an open notebook and has generally succeeded at being just that – a sketchy kind of narrative that follows physical, intellectual and mental peregrinations of its author. In this, it is a very personal account of world events, historical anecdotes and cultural occasions, which is shaped by the author’s two degrees in History and a varied experience in Arts, Media, Advertising, and Education. A dozen of interviews, original or translated, may also be found here and there under a special category. The blog was awarded a Google Blog of Note on August 24, 2009.
The author, Julia Shuvalova, is a writer and translator, a female fluent in a few European languages, in love with European, Arabic and Chinese cultures. However, she was born and presently lives in Russia, her homeland, and stands up for her country’s values, historical input and present (geo)political stance. She teaches Foreign Languages and Journalism and occasionally lectures on Cinema. She has published a couple of books as a translator, a collection of essays as an author, and has numerous publications as a poet and journalist. She lives in Moscow, skis in winter, and winds down with the knitting, surrounded by her pets.
