Research overview

My research covers Russian intellectual and cultural history from the eighteenth century to the collapse of the Soviet Union and its immediate aftermath. In particular, I am interested in the phenomenon of ‘cultural transfer’, namely, the contexts in which ideas and intellectual trends emerge and their transformation once they ‘cross borders’ and enter the fabric of otherwise different cultural and intellectual traditions. In practice, this involves the study of French and German intellectual developments and their reception in Russia.

My current project focuses on the ‘literary dimension’ of Russian historiography in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
