In 2003 I completed a PhD in Slavic Languages (specialising in Russian literature) and since then I have worked as a researcher and lecturer in Russian and the history of Russian literature and culture here at SOL. In 2007, within the framework of a project on the role of memory and the autobiography in Russia after the fall of the Soviet Union, I organised an international conference on “The Poetics of Memory in Post-Totalitarian Narration”, which led to an anthology of the same title (2008).

From 2011 to 2015 I am working on the research project “The memory of Chernobyl in witness and fiction literature from Ukraine, Belarus and Russia”, funded by Riksbankens Jubileumsfond (RJ).

I have also translated two, contemporary Russian novels into Swedish and continuously publish articles on Russian literature and culture in Sydsvenskan and Svenska Dagbladet.


About the research

My research interests span the relationship between memory, narration and identity, Bakhtin's theories, the 19th century Russian novel, and contemporary Russian literature.
