If one is involved in research and academic teaching with focus on Russia-related Gender Studies it makes a difference whether one is located in, say, Moscow, Novosibirsk, Columbus (Ohio), London or Vienna. In my lecture, I will sketch the development of Russia-related Gender Studies in Russia and elsewhere, and the connections between the various locations, protagonists, and practices. I put this field of research in the context of the global division of labour within the social sciences and humanities, applying the concept of academic dependency.
