How does Russian nationalism affect Russian foreign policy, and in turn how is Russian nationalism affected by Russian foreign policy? We answer these questions and more with Dr Sofia Tipaldou and Dr Anastasia Shesterinina in our last event of 2021, live on Facebook and YouTube. As ever, members will be emailed a link to join in on the Zoom call.
Dr Tipaldou is Marie Skłodowska Curie Research Fellow at the University of Manchester undertaking an original research project on the Impact of Russian nationalism on Russia’s foreign policy. She is an active multidisciplinary collaborator, and has undertaken a range of international visiting fellowships resulting in co-authored scholarly publications. Her published research centres on Russian and Greek nationalism, the far right, social movements, and comparative nationalism studies.
Our respondent will be Dr Shesterinina, who is a Lecturer in Politics and International Relations at the University of Sheffield, as well as being a UK Research and Innovation Future Leaders Fellow and Director of the Centre for the Comparative Study of Civil War. Dr Shesterinina’s interests lie at the intersection of international relations, comparative politics, and qualitative methodology. Her field-intensive research explores the internal dynamics of and international intervention in contemporary armed conflict, with a focus on social mobilization, ex-combatant demobilization and reintegration, and civilian protection norms and practices.
