Yulia Savitskaya · December, 2016

I hold a BS in Economics from Moscow State University and a BS equivalent in Cultural Studies from UNIC Institute. Before moving to New York city, I worked as a news editor at Lenta.ru, Russia’s major online news outlet, and as an online managing editor at Russia! magazine. My area of interest includes Soviet everyday culture, social inequality, and gender politics of 1920s and 1930s.
