Nicholas focuses primarily on the history of the Soviet Union and the former socialist bloc.  He is interested in a social history of the Soviet 1970s that could begin to bridge the gap between the reductive narrative of "stagnation" and the nostalgic emphasis on "stability."  His previous work has dealt with architecture and urban transformation in the late Stalin era as well as youth mobilization for agricultural reform under Khrushchev.  Further interests include Slavic languages, spatial history, history of science and technology, and film.
