  • About

    Amanda Getty comes to the department from U-M's Center for Russian, East European and Eurasian studies, where she completed an interdisciplinary master's degree. Her M.A. thesis explores the early works of Russian filmmaker Pavel Lungin, as they address shifting notions of national and cultural identity in Russia following the collapse of the Soviet Union. Though her research interests remain relatively broad, she is fascinated by questions of historical (re)imagination and the construction and elaboration of Russianness in post-Soviet film and literature. Prior to beginning graduate study, Amanda worked in the Russian media. She holds a B.A. in Modern Literary Studies from the University of California, Santa Cruz.
