Doctoral Research

My research is concerned the with representation of LGBT/Queer identities and aesthetics in Russian popular culture, namely through music videos. Informed by gender and queer theories, my research will assess the ways in which music videos that heavily feature queer aesthetics subvert conservative, political discourses in Russia, and how they provoke, reflect and contribute to discussions surrounding LGBT politics in Russia today.
