About

I am a Ph.D. student at UIC from Russia. My academic interests lay in
the field of the cultural and intellectual history of the late Russian
Empire and the early Soviet Union. In particular, my dissertation
project aims to contextualize Chinese presence in Russia by connecting
the history of the turn-of-the-century Chinese labor migrations to the
history of the “Russian” Chinese’s participation in World War I, the
Revolution of 1917, and the ensuing civil wars.
