Svetlana Ter-Grigoryan

Graduate Student

I am a graduate student in Russian and Eastern European History. My area of interest is gender and sexuality in the late-Soviet period. I am currently examining discourses on sexuality during the perestroika period in the USSR in order to better understand glasnost as a policy and a social contract. I have also developed an interest in the transnational developments that fostered these discourses and helped imbue them with meaning.
