Dr Miriam Dobson
Sample Lecture – Russia: The Rule of Khrushchev, 1953-64
Dr Miriam Dobson is Senior Lecturer in Modern History at the University of Sheffield. Her research interests lie in the history of the Soviet Union, with a particular emphasis on the social and cultural history of post-war Russia. Her first book explored popular responses to the reforms of the Khrushchev era, in particular the massive exodus of prisoners from the Gulag. Khrushchev's Cold Summer: Gulag Returnees, Crime, and the Fate of Reform After Stalinexamined the impact of these returnees on communities and, more broadly, Soviet attempts to come to terms with the traumatic legacies of Stalin's terror.
