About

I am a joint JD/PhD student in history. I study twentieth-century interactions between the capitalist west and the socialist east, especially the unexpected business and cultural partnerships that made the Iron Curtain surprisingly permeable. I also am interested in bringing to light echoes of the Cold War in current events, politics, legal culture, and social movements today.

Comrades! Citizens! Brothers and sisters! Men of our army and navy! I am addressing you, my friends!

— Joseph Stalin, Soviet Premier, Broadcast to the People of the Soviet Union, July 3, 1941
