I have been Professor of Russian Studies at the University of Bath since 1991, and from 1994-7 I was also Director of the Centre for Women's Studies at the University.  From 1997 to 2001 I was President of the British Association for Slavonic and East European Studies (BASEES), and I am now Vice-President. From 1999 to 2001 I was also Chair of the Association of Heads of Russian.

My academic career began as a student at Newnham College, Cambridge, and I then went on to do postgraduate work at Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford. My first job was as Lecturer in the Department of Slavonic Studies at The Queen's University of Belfast from 1977-87, and I then moved to the Department of Russian at the University of Exeter, where I became Director of the Centre for Russian and East European Studies.           

I welcome research students who want to work on modern Russian literature and culture of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, Russian women's studies and gender studies. I have particular interests in contemporary Russian literature and society since 1985, and in Stalinism and culture.
