My main research area is Gulag literature. I have published extensively on the topic: my first book explores the works written by the poets and writers kept in the Solovki prison camp and publishing activity within it between 1923 and 1930. I've also explored questions such as the genre status of Gulag literature, Gulag poetry, oral poetry composed within the Soviet camps, trauma and form in Gulag literature, humour in the Gulag, autobiographical issues related to camp writing, and articles devoted to authors such as F. Dostoevskii, V. Grossman, G. Herling-Grudzinski, V. Shalamov, A. Solzhenitsyn, and N. Zabolotskii.
