Axel Springer Fellow - Class of Fall 2017


Aglaya Glebova joined the faculty at the University of California, Irvine, in 2014, after completing her PhD in art history at the University of California, Berkeley, and a BA at Middlebury College. A specialist in post-revolutionary Russian photography, Glebova is completing a monograph on the late work of Alexander Rodchenko, specifically his documentation of the White Sea Baltic Canal construction site (1931-1933), one of the first Soviet forced-labor camps. More broadly, she is interested in photography’s development and uses under conditions of unfreedom. Glebova’s research has been supported by the Canadian Centre for Architecture, American Council of Learned Societies, and the Dedalus Foundation.
