My Gender Studies courses focus on historical explorations of past gendered regimes, with a transnational focus on the modern period (1800-present). Thematically, I examine how gender norms and practices are framed by and help articulate citizenship rights and duties in the modern state, from the ballot box to the schoolroom.
My focus is primarily on Europe, but I also focus on cases from Asia and the Middle East. In my History courses, I focus on Eastern Europe in the modern period, gender and citizenship in comparative perspective, and the history of the Cold War.
My research and teaching interests focus on European history in the modern period, especially social and cultural developments in Eastern Europe, with a special interest in Romania (geographically) and gender (thematically).
