Natalia Savelyeva is a sociologist, visiting researcher at Center for Russia, East Europe, and Central Asia (CREECA), UW-Madison, and a researcher with Public Sociology Laboratory, Centre for Independent Social Research (Russia). She graduated from Moscow State University in 2007. She subsequently received two Master’s degrees at French University College in Moscow and at the European University at St. Petersburg. She received her PhD in Social Sciences from the Institute of Sociology, Russian Academy of Science. Her research is focused on several topics: time and labor; protest movements in Russia and Ukraine; war conflicts on post-Soviet space. Among her fields of expertise are labor studies, organizational and management studies, transformations of capitalism, time and temporality, social movement studies, war studies, and biographical and narrative approaches in social science. During her stay in Indiana University she is going to continue working on two research projects. The first is an anthropological study of the production of future-oriented and time-managed subjectivities in the workplace. Genealogy of soviet and post-soviet time-related managerial practices is the part of this project. The second is dedicated to war conflict in Donbas: its dynamics, factors of mobilization, and role of ideology in it.
