Description of Research:

My current research is a comparative study of transnational Russian Jewish and Russian German migrants in Canada, focusing on what constitutes the meaning of home to them, specifically, the meaning of belonging and feeling at home.

My doctoral research is building on my master’s thesis research, which explored the sense of national identity and belonging amongst first-generation Volga German migrants in Germany. The data for my master’s thesis was gathered through oral history interviews with individuals of Volga German origin who came to Germany from the former Soviet Union when they were children.
