Staff in Russian and East European Studies conduct research of an interdisciplinary nature across a broad range of subjects, including:
- 19th and 20th-century literature and intellectual history;
- Soviet and post-Soviet cinema and the media;
- gender studies;
- memory studies;
- nationalism and ethnic politics historically and in the post-communist period;
- post-communist transition in East Central Europe.
The discipline of Russian and East European Studies constitutes a core group of the Cross-Disciplinary Russian and Eurasian Studies Network, which facilitates collaboration in research and postgraduate teaching and supervision among relevant members of staff across the Faculty of Humanities at Manchester.
