Research interests:
An important direction of my research interests is the study of late Soviet sociality which I explored through an example of Institutions and Networks in Soviet literature. As a development of my interest in Institutions, I studied "shadow education" in contemporary Russia, namely how private tutors work in a complex institutional space between different educational institutions. Then I traced how private tutoring went through a process of crystallization into a non-institutionalized profession which is different from the profession of an ordinary Russian teacher. In addition, I was interested in the topic of historical memory and memorial culture in Russia, which led me to studying the phenomenon of researching family genealogies in Russia.
