Lisa Gaufman

Lisa Gaufman is an assistant professor at the Faculty of Arts, where she focuses on Russian Discourse and Politics. She previously worked for three years as a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute for Intercultural and International Studies. Her research interests are in nationalism, sexuality issues, and verbal and visual enemy images. Her research forms an intersection between political theory, international relations, media and cultural studies, taking an interdisciplinary approach.

In 'The Trump Carnival' Gaufman and Bharath Ganesh draw a comparison between Trump and the medieval carnival. During carnival, 'the people' seized power, but for many minorities it was a cruel celebration, they argue.
