I am a historian and Senior Lecturer in European Studies. My research focuses on memory of traumatic events of the 20th Century in Central and East European historical cultures and on development of Communism in Europe during the Cold War. I work on a project with the title “Making Sense of the ”Good” Soviet Communist Dictatorship Through Stalin´s Terror, Khrushchev´s Reforms and Brezhnev´s Period of Stagnation. A historical narrative by the former KGB chairman Vladimir Semichastny.” It has been supported by The Swedish Foundation for Humanities and Social Sciences. I am also grateful to the Hoover Institution Archives at Stanford University for their support.The project is based on my interviews with Vladimir Semichastny (1924-2001), whom I met in Moscow on numerous occasions between the years 1993 and 1999. The book is under contract with Yale University Press and will appear in the Yale-Hoover series on Authoritarian Regimes.
