Stuart Finkel is Visiting Associate Professor of History and Russian Studies. He received his Ph.D. from Stanford University in 2001, and he has taught since 2006 at the University of Florida in Gainesville. His book, On the Ideological Front: The Russian Intelligentsia and the Making of the Soviet Public Sphere (Yale University Press, 2007) describes the sharply contested role of the intelligentsia after the Revolutions of 1917, culminating in the expulsion from Russia of close to one hundred prominent intellectuals in 1922-23. These events initiated the process of Bolshevizing the country’s cultural and professional organizations and severely restricted autonomous civil society.
Professor Finkel is currently researching the history of the Russian Political Red Cross, which under the leadership of Ekaterina Peshkova lobbied on behalf of political prisoners under Soviet rule from 1918 to 1937. This project aims to illuminate the fate of political prisoners, the development of the Soviet punitive system, and the inner workings of the process of appeal and political patronage in the Soviet Union.
