Current research

Through ethnographic fieldwork, my PhD-project investigates the experiences of Belarusian and Russian activists living in exile. With a focus on the intersections between the personal and the political, my research explores how people produce new ideas of home and belonging amidst rapid and traumatic geopolitical changes.

The project is supervised by Mikhail Suslov.
