Michael Urban's research has dealt principally with Russia (USSR), focusing on questions of political language and ideology, the circulation of elites, the dynamics of the mass movement that overthrew the communist regime, and the problems of state and society in the post-communist period. He has also explored the appearance and development of blues music and culture in Russia, focusing on social identity and community formation under conditions of stress and uncertainty.
