Personal profile


My research interests include nationalism, historical culture, and the instrumental use of history in the former Kresy Wschodnie, the eastern border regions which today make up Western Belarus, Western Ukraine, and parts of Lithuania. A primary focal point are memories of 20th century political violence and ideological history writing in the post-Soviet successor states and their overseas diasporas. My book The Rise and Fall of Belarusian Nationalism, 1906-1931 appeared 2015 with the University of Pittsburgh Press. From 2015 I was Visitiing Senior Fellow and coordinator of the European Studies Program at the National Univeristy of Singapore. In 2019 I was appointed Wallenberg Academy Fellow at Lund University, with a five-year research fellowship from the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation which generously underwrites my current research project on Ukrainian long-distance nationalism during the Cold War.
