Anastasiia Strakhova is in her fourth year of the Ph.D. program in History at Emory University (Atlanta, GA). Specializing in Modern Jewish and Russian history, she is particularly interested in the everyday mechanisms of border-crossing and fashioning of new Russian-Jewish identities during the era of mass migration from the Russian Empire. Coming originally from Ukraine, she received her B.A. Degree from International Solomon University, and then earned an M.A. in Comparative History (Jewish Studies specialization) at Central European University in Budapest, Hungary. Implementing a transnational research project, at Emory University she works under supervision of both an expert in American Jewish history, Doctor Eric Goldstein, and a specialist in Russian Jewish history, Doctor Ellie Schainker.
