Professor Kleimola's work focuses on Russian society and culture. Recent research has been devoted to the art and architecture of the Russian North (especially the Vologda and Arkhangel'sk provinces), current issues of historic preservation and restoration, dynastic politics in the era of Ivan IV, and the role of the veneration of the Kazan' icon of the Mother of God in Russian culture. Several of her recent articles explore the Russian experience as part of the emerging field of human-animal bonds and the history of applied animal behavior.
