Paul Goode

Member-at-large Candidate

Paul Goode is Associate Professor and McMillan Chair in Russian Studies at Carleton University (Canada). His research focuses on nationalism and authoritarianism in Russia from a comparative perspective. Goode’s current research project, Russian Media Observation and Reporting (RuMOR), is funded by Canada’s Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC). The project tracks Russia’s war narratives in its domestic media as well as their influence in other countries’ media environments.  

In research and publishing, Goode prioritizes international collaboration and support for emerging scholars. The RuMOR project includes partners based in Georgia, Kazakhstan, Germany, and the US. He also serves as Co-Lead for the East European and Trans-Atlantic Network (EETN), which cultivates policy-relevant international partnerships with an emphasis on mentoring the next generation of regional experts. As Editor-in-Chief of Communist and Post-Communist Studies since 2020, Goode aims to platform scholars from the regions we study and to promote work by graduate students and early career scholars. He is currently editing a volume on Russian propaganda with a diverse team of contributors at a variety of career stages based in Canada, France, Georgia, Germany, Italy, Kazakhstan, Netherlands, Poland, Sweden, Ukraine, the US, and the United Kingdom. 

A longstanding member of ASEEES and adjacent associations like ASN and BASEES, Goode has seen the Association develop into an exemplar for multi-disciplinary research collaboration, learning, and advocacy, providing invaluable leadership through the global pandemic and Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine. Goode believes that ASEEES will continue to play a vital role in helping scholars to meet and overcome these and other challenges.
