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.
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.
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.
