Laurie Stoff, a Senior Lecturer at Barrett, came to the Honors College in 2014. She holds a PhD and MA in History from the University of Kansas and a BA in History from The George Washington University. She specializes in Russian, East European, and women's and gender history and studies. She has extensive teaching experience at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, and in honor courses, having taught at the University of Kansas, the University of Vermont, and most recently, at Louisiana Tech University, where she was Associate Professor and Director of Graduate Studies in the Department of History and the recipient of a number of teaching and research awards.

Research Interests

Dr. Stoff’s research focuses on the intersections of gender and war, specifically, Russian women and the Great War. Her first book, They Fought for the Motherland: Russia's Women Soldiers in World War I and the Revolution (University Press of Kansas, 2006), examines the experiences of the women who served as combatants during the First World War in Russia. She is currently researching the participation of women in medical services during that conflict. Her most recent article, “The ‘Myth of the War Experience’ and Russian Wartime Nursing in World War I,” was published in the journal Aspasia, The International Yearbook of Central, Eastern, and Southeastern European Women's and Gender History Vol. 6 (2012). She is also completing a book on this topic entitled More than Binding Men’s Wounds: Women’s Wartime Nursing in Russia during the Great War, due out with UPK in the fall of 2015. As part of the international editorial team for the multi-volume project Russia's Great War and Revolution , she is lead editor for a volume exploring the frontline experiences of soldiers, nurses, and prisoners of war. Additionally, she serves as Associate Editor of an interdisciplinary journal in development entitled Gender & Conflict, which will feature innovative scholarship drawn from the methodologies and questions of the humanities and social sciences to consider the ways gender and conflict frame personal experiences, political negotiations, and cultural expressions.
