The Imperiia Project: a spatial history of the Russian Empire

Valerie Browne (research assistant)

Valerie Browne graduated from West Virginia University with a double major in English and Russian studies and a minor in political science. As an undergraduate, she served as head research assistant for the West Virginia Dialect Project and was an Intern Russian translator with Global Wordsmiths’ Language Access Project. Her academic interests center around the sociolinguistics of the post-Soviet space, the history of language and cultural policy there, and the ways in which evolving national identities affect language choices in the region. Valerie studied Russian through the Critical Language Scholarship Program, first virtually in 2021 and then in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan during the summer of 2022. She spent the 2022-23 academic year in Krakow, Poland, teaching English and volunteering with Ukrainian refugees as a Fulbright ETA.
