About Kitty Lam

I received my Ph.D. in History at Michigan State University in February 2013 with a dissertation titled "“Shared Space, Varied Lives: Finnish-Russian Interactions in Dacha Country, 1880s-1920s.” I am currently working on a book manuscript on the dacha life as representation of imperial processes in Finland and the Baltic lands. I have been teaching World History at IMSA since 2013.
