Nina L. Khrushcheva (Нина Львовна Хрущёва, /xrʊ.ˈɕo.və/) is a Russian American professor at The New School, a senior fellow of the World Policy Institute, and from 2002 to 2004 was adjunct assistant professor at the School of International and Public Affairs at Columbia University. Khrushcheva received a degree from Moscow State University with a major in Russian in 1987 and a Ph.D. in Comparative Literature from Princeton University in 1998.

Family[edit]

Khrushcheva is the granddaughter of Leonid Khrushchev, eldest son of former Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev. When Leonid died in World War II, Nikita adopted Leonid's two-year old daughter Julia, Nina's mother. Nikita Khrushchev is thus Nina Khrushcheva's biological great-grandfather, but adoptive grandfather. Khrushcheva's father, Lev Petrov, died in 1970, aged 47.[1]

Author[edit]

Khrushcheva is the author of numerous articles, director of the Russia Project at the World Policy Institute, contributor to Project Syndicate: Association of Newspapers Around the World, and editor of Project Syndicate's Russia column. She is the author of Imagining Nabokov: Russia Between Art and Politics and member of Council on Foreign Relations.
