My principal research theme is social power and globalization in Eastern Europe. In particular my interests are related to cultural representations, the development of post-soviet identities (with a special focus on gender) and the applicability of western concepts of transnationalism and hegemony to post-Soviet space and media. I am also interested in examining how creativity and knowledge in the post-communist region are transformed by technological changes (including the advent of new media forms). Currently I am working on several projects dealing with mass-media representations of terrorism; the ‘security threat’ discourse in Russian media and the treatment of inter-ethnic cohesion in the post-Soviet media.
