My research interests led me to serve as managing secretary of the international
conference dedicated to the Bicentennial of the Russian-American
Company (1799-1999.) I am also participating in the multimedia English-Russian
of Frontiers that tells the story of the meeting of the Russian-American
frontier in Alaska and the Pacific Northwest, which grew out of discussion
between members of Congress, in particular Alaska Senator Ted Stevens and
James Billington, the Librarian of Congress. I have been discussed the
project and my research with both Senator Stevens
and Dr. Billington
GENERAL RESEARCH INTERESTS include the history of the USA and Russia as well as political science reserch on both countries.
CURRENT REPORT on my research and related activity, together
with either texts or outlines of my lectures and seminars from March through
September 2001, has been presented to the Kenan Institute, Woodrow Wilson
Center, Washington D.C. See report
