About James von Geldern

My primary interests are in Russian and Soviet popular culture and cultural history; comparative studies in revolutions and commemoration; international law and legal frameworks; cultural studies. My most recent project is Seventeen Moments in Soviet History, a website featuring archival video, music and audio, and texts from Soviet history. I am also the author of Bolshevik Festivals, 1917-1920 and two anthologies, Mass Culture in Soviet Russia and Entertaining Tsarist Russia.
My current interests lie in international law and human rights. In this capacity, I represent asylum petitioners on a pro bono basis in the federal immigration court in Bloomington, MN.
EDUCATION: B.A., Tufts University; M.A., PhD Brown University; J.D., University of Minnesota.
Professor Von Geldern has been teaching at Macalester since 1988.
