Queer lives and urban space: from Russia to the new Europe

  • Start date: 16 January 2012
  • End date: 15 January 2013

The Fellowship aims to consolidate research undertaken so far, and to develop new conceptual frameworks to analyse European sexualities in a comparative perspective, advancing an intersectional research agenda attuned to national and local contexts. It draws on the author’s previous research, including an ethnographic study on lesbian identities and queer space in contemporary urban Russia, which compared the experiences of women from Moscow and from provincial Ul’yianovsk, and an oral history project on lesbian existence in Soviet Russia.

One of the Fellowship’s objectives is to disseminate widely existing work and to establish a track record of publications; expected outputs are a contract for a monograph and articles in high profile journals. The Fellowship also aims to develop new areas of research, through:

  • the organisation of the one-day conference ‘Queer sexualities, ethnicity and racism in the new Europe’ (London South Bank University, October 2012
  • the development of a collaborative research bid, focusing on theme of queer in/visibilities in Europe, with Professor Yvette Taylor (named mentor).
  • Outputs (15)
