Eve Levin, Editor

Eve has served as Editor of The Russian Review since 1996. From 1988 to 1996, she served as Associate Editor under the late Professor Allan Wildman. In addition, she holds the position of Professor in the Department of History at The University of Kansas. 

Professor Levin holds a B.A. from Mount Holyoke College (1975), an M.A. from Indiana University (1976), and a Ph.D. from Indiana University (1983). She was on the faculty at The Ohio State University from 1983 until June 2003, when she accepted a position at The University of Kansas. Her research specialization lies in the area of the history of Russia and the Balkans in the premodern period, especially issues relating to gender, sexuality, religion, medicine, and popular culture. She is the author of Sex and Society in the World of the Orthodox Slavs, 900-1700 (Cornell University Press, 1989), and the translator and editor of Natalia Pushkareva's Women in Russian History (M.E. Sharpe, 1997). She has held major grants from the International Research and Exchanges Board (IREX), the Fulbright-Hays program of the Department of Education, the American Council of Learned Societies, and the National Council for Eurasian and East European Research. She is a founding member of the Early Slavic Studies Association, and served as its first Newsletter Editor (1987-91). From 1992 to 1995, she served as Director for Ohio State's Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies. She is also an acclaimed undergraduate teacher and mentor to graduate students, recently headed up KU's participation in the Carnegie Initiative on the Doctorate, and in June 2005 became Director of Graduate Studies in KU's Department of History.

When professional responsibilities allow, Eve spends time in her garden, where she grows grapes and herbs.  It is therapeutic sometimes, she says, to "take a hoe and whack some clods."   Other than Slavic studies and gardening, her great passion is chocolate.
