Dr Lara Green
Lara Green is a historian of revolutionary Russia with a particular interest in transnational networks, terrorism, and revolutionary literature.
Lara’s current research builds on a range of issues explored in her recently-completed PhD thesis ‘Russian Revolutionary Terrorism in Transnational Perspective: Representations and Networks, 1881-1926’. She is working on a book project, tentatively titled The Russian Free Press Fund, 1881-1925: Local, National, and Transnational Networks, which will centre the history of the Russian revolutionary emigration on transnational networks of publishing and political activism. Particularly interested in women’s roles in these networks, she is using digital methods to reconstruct the everyday life of émigré political activism. Her other research focuses on Russian literature about terrorism in translation as well as the transnational media representations of Russian revolutionaries.
Lara joined the department in 2019, having previously completed her PhD at Northumbria University.
