About Me

Website profile image

I am currently a PhD Candidate at The University of Adelaide, writing a dissertation on the development of Holodomor discourse in the West and how it has impacted on the construction of identities in the Ukrainian diaspora. My research interests have been driven by a curiosity surrounding the ways in which language can motivate, shape and drive social movements and collective identities. My approach is cross-disciplinary, incorporating linguistic, cultural, literary and anthropological theories. I currently teach at the University of Adelaide and Adelaide Institute of Higher Education. A list of my published research can be found here.
