Bio



I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of History at MSU whose current project focuses on how the importation of contraband items into 1970s Leningrad was valuable to establishing an identity for rock subculture groups. I am also working on a project detailing the role of corn during Khrushchev’s agricultural reforms. Previous projects have focused on the importance on Islam in establishing and defining identity in Chechnya.
