Ph. D., University lecturer, Docent (Adjunct Professor) in Russian history, Freelance writer and photographer

My academi947201_10151463629154930_81021890_nc interests include history of mentalities and ideas, image studies, Russian history and borderland issues. I am especially interested in representations and uses of the past, and politicization of history.

I am also a freelance writer and photographer. Besides topics related to history and culture, I like to write about – and photograph – nature, environment, countryside and all kind of living creatures.

This page is still (eternally, I’m afraid) under construction. Meanwhile, take a look at my CV and the list of my publications. Feel free to contact me via email: kati.parppei at
