PhD research

Everyday Stalinism in the Caucasus 1920-1930
Supervisor: Touraj Atabaki

My PhD research aims to study the impact of early Soviet policies on daily life in the Caucasus and Central Asia. It explores how the Bolsheviks attempted to get the multi-ethnic population actively involved in the socialist experiment and what way people in the periphery influenced this process.
