I am a teacher and scholar of history. I teach at The Ohio State University's History Department, Newark Campus. I research Soviet and post-Soviet Russia. I have particular interests in youth, modernity, social controls, popular culture, consumption, emotions, the Cold War, cultural diplomacy, crime, and violence.
