Research project: The Soviet (Women’s) Gulags

My third novel, I plan to work under the fellowship, deals with women’s Gulags during the Stalinist totalitarian regime. It will tell the experience of the prisoners of Akmolinsk camp (1938-1953) showing the lives and endures of women under the Soviet regime. It will be the story about women’s spaces, networks, collaborations and resistances under the totalitarian malice.
