The Imperiia Project: a spatial history of the Russian Empire

Kelly O'Neill (project director)

Kelly O'Neill created and directs the Imperiia Project at the Davis Center for Russian and Eurasian Studies. She is a historian, a teacher, and - on good days - a teller of map stories.

Kelly earned her Ph.D. in History at Harvard University, where she served as Assistant and Associate Professor in the History Department. She earned her B.A. in Russian at Amherst College

If the world of Russianists must be divided into those who love Moscow and those who love Saint Petersburg, Kelly falls into the latter category. Crimea won her over long ago, however. Its landscapes and rich history continue to inspire her work.
