Current Research: Modern European History, Women's and Gender, Global and Comparative

I graduated from Saint-Petersburg State University in 2010 as a «Specialist» in history. In 2017 I received my MA at European University at Saint-Petersburg where I majored in memory studies. My master thesis was about memory politics in Soviet Union in the late-Stalin and early Khrushchev eras. I concentrated on the image of the 'First Chekist’ Felix Dzerzhinsky and how it was created in film. I’m interested Soviet history, Soviet film, cultural memory and subjectivity.
