Overview

About

I received my MA (1992) and PhD (1997) from the University of Tartu (Estonia). I taught at the University of Tartu from 1990 to 2002. From 2002 I have been teaching at the University of Alberta.


Research

My research areas include: the history of Russian religious art (17th and 18th centuries); the official culture of the Russian Empire in the 18th century; the history of the Russian Imperial calendar; and the major themes and poetics of Russian odes. I also supervise PhD students in the areas of symbolic geographies and themes of Russian Orthodoxy in contemporary Russian literature.
