Dr. Jug is a fluent speaker of the Russian language thanks to family background and extensive experience conducting research in Russia. He completed his PhD in Fall 2013, with his dissertation entitled “All Stalin’s Men? Soldierly Masculinities in the Soviet War Effort, 1938-1945”. His current research focuses on the interaction of masculinities, subjetivities in propaganda and public opinion in wartime Russia. Dr. Jug primarily focuses on the Red Army during the Second World War, but has recently expanded his research to the Imperial Russian Army during the First World War.
