Smolensk under Nazi Rule: Problems of Entangled Histories

Michael David-Fox is a historian of modern Russian and Soviet history. He has published widely on the political, cultural, and intellectual history of late imperial Russia and the early Soviet Union. He has strong interests in transnational and comparative history and in the history of Russian-German relations, broadly conceived. David-Fox is now working on the history of the Nazi occupation of the USSR during World War II.  David-Fox is founding and executive editor of Kritika: Explorations in Russian and Eurasian History, which is based at Georgetown.  David-Fox maintains scholarly interests in source criticism, historiography, and the history of Russian Studies. In his writing and his teaching, he delights in establishing and probing often unexpected connections: between culture and politics, institutions and mentalities, or domestic and international developments. His most recent publication is Showcasing the Great Experiment: Cultural Diplomacy and Western Visitors to the Soviet Union, 1921-1941 (Oxford UP, 2012).
