Brigid O'Keeffe's book, New Soviet Gypsies: Nationality, Performance, and Selfhood in the Early Soviet Union, examines how, during the first two decades of Bolshevik rule, Soviet nationality policy enabled Roma to refashion themselves as conscious, integrated Soviet citizens. O'Keeffe is also at work on new research project that examines Esperanto and internationalism in late imperial Russia and the early Soviet Union. For a bit more on this project, look here or here.
