Podcast

Helen Rappaport is a historian and writer specialising in the Victorian era and revolutionary Russia. She studied Russian at Leeds University and worked as an actor, translator, and academic editor before turning to historical writing. In this interview, she discusses her two current projects, the first focusing on Russian emigrants in Paris in the early twentieth century and the second exploring the life of Juliane of Saxe-Coburg, later Grand Duchess Anna Feodorovna of Russia. She also comments on her love for unusual historical narratives and her diverse influences as a historian.
