I received a B.A. (with distinction) from the School of Slavonic and East European Studies at the University of London and a Ph.D. from Oxford University (Merton College). After stays in Moscow and Los Angeles, I accepted an appointment as assistant professor at Indiana University, Bloomington, and subsequently took up a position at the University of California, Santa Barbara. I have been a visiting professor at Constance University, Germany, and at the Free University in Berlin. Honors and awards have included fellowships at the Stanford Humanities Center (Stanford University); the Society for the Humanities at Cornell University; the Literaturzentrum in Berlin; and Monash University (Melbourne).
