Academic Appointments

Lecturer in Russian Studies

Her research focuses on late-Soviet and post-Soviet literature and culture, gender and sexuality, erotica and pornography, émigré and underground literature of the late-Soviet period, and public performance. She also more broadly examines cross-cultural taboos and sociopolitical discourses revolving around them. She is interested in comparative studies of (Soviet) Russian, Yugoslav, and U.S. censorships, cultural restrictions, official bans and prohibitions of sexually explicit materials, and anti-obscenity laws.
