Biography

Yana Skorobogatov is a historian of Russia and the Soviet Union. Her current book manuscript is a history of the Soviet death penalty after 1954, provisionally titled Killing the Soviet Man: The Death Penalty in the Soviet Union, 1954-1991. In addition to her interests in topics related to criminal justice, she is fascinated by the idea of Soviet communism’s afterlife, a theme she will explore in her second book project about the transition from communism to capitalism on the island of Sakhalin, in the Russian Far East.
