Tamar Shirinian received her Ph.D. in Cultural Anthropology, with a certificate in Feminist Studies, from Duke University in 2016. She is currently a Postdoctoral Teaching Fellow and the Co-Director of Women’s and Gender Studies at Millsaps College in Jackson, MS. Her work is interested in the intersections of postsocialist and queer studies, understanding these objects of study through one another.

Her current book project, Survival of a Perverse Nation: Sexuality and Kinship in Post-Soviet Armenia, explores the ways in which postsocialism can be understood as a perversion of time and space, queering political-economic transition. Her forthcoming articles will appear inAmerican Ethnologist and lamda nordica. While based in the discipline of anthropology, her work is in conversation with wider queer and feminist studies.
