Oxana Karnauhkova background includes degrees in Humanities – History, Psychology and Cultural Studies with an experience in interdisciplinary research in Intercultural Communications. My achievements in this field are proven through a number of projects, held in Russia and abroad, as well as in the publication list. When majoring in History, I concentrated on the problems of ethnic groups, power structures and state relationships. I was especially interested in psychology of intercultural communication, which became the focus of my graduate studies. Also, I have completed PhD program (Rostov State University, Russia), specializing in the field of Theory and History of Culture. My research projects have involved a combination of these subjects. My significant projects “Communicative strategies in multicultural regions” (Carnegie Fellowship Program, 2005-2006) and “Multiculturalism as the paradigm of the postcolonial development (the comparative analysis of the British and Russian models)” (Oxford Colleges Hospitality Scheme, 2006) were devoted to the problems of multiculturalism as cultural practice and social ideology and its transformations through time and regions.
