Current Research

I am a historian of gender and sexuality in late imperial Russia and the early Soviet Union. I was awarded my PhD from the University of Nottingham in 2017. My PhD research focused on female urban prostitution in Russia in the period 1900-1917. I examined how prostitutes, their clients, and wider urban communities experienced, and resisted, the empire-wide system of regulation which remained in place until 1917. This project was based on archival research conducted in Moscow, St Petersburg, Arkhangel'sk, Riga, Tartu, and Kyiv.
