Roxanne spent her youth in West Virginia and Alaska, which may account for the funny way she talks. She teaches the history of Eastern and Western Europe, with a research specialty in nineteenth-century Russia. Non-academic loves include good British mysteries, flea market shopping, and the peculiar worldview of her eight-year-old daughter, Alice.

Her recent research includes her latest book, The Emancipation of the Serfs in Russia: Peace Arbitrators and the Development of Civil Society, as well as work on People of Mixed Heritage in Alaska which will appear in the Pacific Northerwest Quarterly. For more information on her work and education, please see her curriculum vitae.
