Her research, which has appeared in SEEJ, Russian Review, and Slavic Review, examines nineteenth- and twentieth-century Russian poetry within historical and political context. In her current book project, Civic Sentimentalism: Pushkin and the Decembrists, she shows how literature helped create political and emotional communities during the reign of Alexander I.
