Biographical Info


Julia Khan earned her Ph.D. in anthropology, presenting research at the crossroads of nationalism, self, and emotion, centered on an urban post-Soviet Kazakhstan school. Her focus was adolescent socialization into a national identity through emotional education and tacit politics of emotion within teacher, parent, and student relationships. Her work expanded scholarship on post-Soviet nation-building, revealing affective discourses and their implications for post-Soviet belonging and state-making. Beyond Kazakhstan, her interests span emotion, personhood, affective education, school ethnography, morality, post-socialism, and the state, reflecting a comprehensive approach to understanding individual experiences in the post-Soviet context.
