Research Interests: 

My dissertation investigates the system of the Soviet summer camps during the period from 1958 to 1983. I look at the factors that shaped the Soviet summer camps' everyday functioning and the educational strategies developed for these childcare institutions. Finally I use oral history to study the memories about the Soviet summer camps and the controversies of remembering the USSR in contemporary Ukraine in general.
