18 April 2007 3. Lindquist argues that Katerina’s magic is effective in changing the ‘structures of subjectivity’ of her clients. Drawing on 2 examples from chapters 6 or 7, explain what this means, and how such changes occur. During the chaotic years in Russia when the economic and political states were inconceivably deteriorating after years of stability, citizens of Russia went to magi in order to get away from these hardships that they were now facing. When people went to these healers, they were going in order to “accumulate being”; they wanted to get a grasp on their life and in a socially driven context, wanted to know how to have a satisfying and good life. Therefore, the “structures of subjectivity” were changed in order to achieve this goal. When the “structures of subjectivity’ are discussed, they refer to the emotions, thoughts and feelings that make a person’s perception of their life. Also, they explain they ways in which people’s lives seem to be gratifying and good.
