Personal profile

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.

Research interests

I have written on the influence of Western philosophy (Bergson, Plato) in Russia, as well as on aspects of pre-Revolutionary and post-Soviet juridical thought and practice. In my personal research, I  am currently working on the development of historical thought during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. In addition, I am initiating a collaborative project with Russian colleagues on aspects of contemporary Russian society and culture.
