A Canadian, Dan Healey studied Russian Language and Literature at the University of Toronto, where he defended his PhD in 1998. He then moved to Britain. Prior to joining the Swansea History Department in Wales, he held a Wellcome Trust Research Fellowship at the University of Glasgow. His research interests encompass gender, sexuality, and medicine in nineteenth- and twentieth-century Russia.
In 2001 Healey published a weighty monograph “Homosexual Desire in Revolutionary Russia: The Regulation of Sexual and Gender Dissent” (University of Chicago Press, 2001). Healey has recently completed a study of sexual crime and forensic medicine in 1920s Petrograd and Sverdlovsk; he is now working on a study of medicine in the Gulag forced-labour camp system.
