My first book, Homosexual Desire in Revolutionary Russia: The Regulation of Sexual and Gender Dissent (Chicago, University of Chicago Press, 2001), is the first book-length study of same-sex love in modern Russia. A Russian translation appeared in Moscow in 2008 with Ladomir Press. In 2009 my new book on Soviet forensic medicine and sexual disorder will be published by Northern Illinois University Press: Bolshevik Sexual Forensics: Diagnosing Disorder in Clinic and Courtroom, 1917-1939.

I have also published articles about Soviet psychiatry's views of lesbians and sex offenders, on male prostitution in early 20th-century Russia, homosexual identity as resistance under Stalin, queer historiography on the Soviet Union, contemporary Russia's sexual politics, and the Russian national idea in gay men's pornography. I have co-edited collections of essays on Russian masculinities (2002) and on Soviet medical history (forthcoming). Currently I am studying the history of medicine in the Gulag archipelago, Stalin's network of concentration camps. I am an editor of H-Histsex; serve on the UK collective of the journal Gender & History; and co-coordinate the Sexuality Network of the European Social Science History Conference.
