  • Profile

    Boris Noordenbos is Assistant Professor in Literary and Cultural Analysis at the University of Amsterdam, and is affiliated to the Amsterdam School for Cultural Analysis (ASCA). He earned his PhD at Groningen University. His dissertation was awarded the Keetje Hodshon Prize for Literary Studies in 2014. Boris' monograph Post-Soviet Literature and the Search for a Russian Identity (Palgrave Macmillan, 2016) explores an emerging fascination in Russian letters with questions of cultural identity and national character, a literary interest that dovetails with the renewed national self-assertiveness of the Putin era. In more recent publications Boris examines a variety of commemorative practices and discourses in the cultures of the former Soviet Union. He is interested, for instance, in the role of conspiracy theories in cultural memory, and has written on the figure of the (Soviet) spy and its recent reappearance in Russian popular culture. Furthermore, Boris has contributed to current debates about nostalgia in former socialist countries. Together with Ksenia Robbe and Otto Boele he has edited a volume (Routledge, 2019) on post-Soviet nostalgia. The volume explores the political appropriation of nostalgic sentiments by post-Soviet governments, but also investigates less politicized forms of longing that are rooted in generational attachments, local identities and personal memories.
