Abstract:This work articulates to ongoing studies of civil society and social organizations that examine the range of informal interpersonal practices that configure new social orders in post-Soviet countries. My dissertation adds to studies of local organizational practices, transnational interventions, and the production and consumption of discourses while contributing to cross-cultural studies of institution building and "civil society" in post-socialism that bridge the disciplines of anthropology, sociology, history, and political science. My dissertation contributes to work on post-socialist civil societies by providing ethnographic details of the complex social forces---particularly gender, class, and social networks---that shape the self-organization of society in a specific post-Soviet setting.
