Her Ph.D. dissertation at Yale, titled Teaching Architecture to the Masses: Vkhutemas and the Pedagogy of Space, 1920-1930, examines the emergence of modern design education through the lens of Vkhutemas, an inter-disciplinary higher education institution in the 1920s that has been termed the “Soviet Bauhaus.” Her work focuses on the various methods developed at the school by the leaders of the Russian avant-garde, including Nikolay Ladovsky, Alexander Rodchenko, Moisey Ginzburg, and others. Bokov was a recipient of the Mellon Fellowship and of the Beinecke Research Fellowship at Yale, in addition to being awarded an honorable citation from the Graham Foundation.
