Short Bio

Associate professor at the University of Bologna, I devote my research to the political and social history of the USSR. My ongoing projects explore various facets of justice: as a political tool (to assert authority and to police society), as a mode of communication (among various State actors and social groups), and as a form of historical narrative (as I deal mostly with war crimes trials). While rooted in concrete spaces – Ukraine, Southern Russia, Belarus – this project requires a steady gaze across multiple levels of analysis: the pan-Soviet level, the Soviet block, and eventually international relations.

PhD in history Paris 1 Panthéon Sorbonne (2011), post-doctoral positions in French research centres located in France and the Russian Federation (2012-2019).
