KSENIA LITVINENKO / RUSSIA / Department of History

“I feel very lucky to have been a part of the department. Being interested in the history of Soviet architecture, I have gained a lot of inspiration from faculty and fellow students doing their own research in various fields. I have developed a more nuanced perspective on my own work and learned a lot about new historical contexts and approaches.”
