Before
In the past, I taught courses and guest lectures in Amsterdam, Bergen, Cambridge, and guest seminars at, among other locations, FU Berlin, Columbia, Freiburg, Oxford, Smolny College St. Petersburg, and Stanford university. My teaching topics included Russian cultural history, literature and new media, Russian postmodern art and writing, Soviet memory and media, late and post-Soviet culture, 19th-century Russian literature, Slavic philosophy, and literary and cultural theory. 

Examples of BA and MA theses that I supervised include analyses of online Stalin representations; postmodernism and trauma in Sorokin's prose; Russian and Ukrainian nostalgia and/in voting; Russian dissident visions on homosexuality; and post-Soviet online slang.



Now
At the moment, I am teach and participate in BA and MA courses on Russia and Eastern Europe as cultural constructions, the politics of (Soviet-era) children's literature, Central and Eastern European cultural memories, and on globalization and cultural imaginaries. BA, MA theses and papers that students have recently written under my supervision include work on failure and gender in 21st-century literature; sincerity rhetoric in contemporary Russian politics; and war writing in late and post-Soviet Russia. 

In Amsterdam, I welcome BA and MA/RMA proposals on related topics, and on work related to Russian cultural history, (post-Soviet) contemporary culture, literature, aesthetics, and social media.
