I joined the University of Leeds as a Lecturer in September 2000 and was promoted to Associate Professor in 2014.
I wrote my thesis on Dostoevsky and Slavophilism at the University of Sheffield and was awarded my PhD in 2000.
As Co-Director of the Leeds Russian Centre my research is connected with the Centre's agenda of Russia(n) in the Global Context. I am interested in canon formation, especially in relation to national identities; conservatism in culture; theories of cultural globality and globalisation; narrative, especially first-person narrative and memory; gender and women's writing; 19th Century Russian literature, especially Dostoevsky and Tolstoy; contemporary Russian literature.
I am available to supervise students in any area related to my research interests, especially Dostoevsky and Tolstoy.<h4>Research projects</h4> <p>Any research projects I'm currently working on will be listed below.
