Hi there!

I'm a student from the Art Insitute of California Los Angeles doing a research project on Russians in Los Angeles. Part of the project requires us to go out into the community where our chosen nationality lives in Southern California. We have to conduct interviews with these people to get an idea of their cultural background. So if you are Russian and are living in the Southern California area please help me and answer the interview questions I have created. If you have anything else to add, please include that.

Russian Interview Questions:

Name:
Age:
Russian origins:
Current Residence:

1. How/why did you come to the U.S?
2. Why Southern California?
3. What are your religious beliefs?
4. How big is the Russian community where you live?
5. What do you think about the criminal stereotype of Russians in Los Angeles?
6. What's the difference between Old Russians (immigrants that came before the fall of Communism) and New Russians (post Communism)? Which one are you?
7. What do you think about Russian mail order brides?
8. What is your opinion of Russia? Of WWII? Of its economic condition? Of communism?
9. Would you ever go back to Russia?
10. What kind of arts are most Russians into? Are you an artist of some kind?
11. Are Russians typically proud to be Russian?
12. How tight/close are Russian families? Are they usually strict on culture?
13. How would you describe Russian culture?
14. If we were to create an exhibit on Russian culture, what would you like to see?
