Edward Tyerman

Edward Tyerman is an associate professor in the Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures at the University of California, Berkeley. His research focuses on cultural connections and exchanges between Russia and China from the early 20th century to the present, within the wider contexts of state socialism, socialist internationalism, and post-socialism. His first book, Internationalist Aesthetics: China and Early Soviet Culture (Columbia University Press, 2021), rediscovers the intensive engagement with China in early Soviet culture as a key experiment in the imagining of socialist internationalism.
