Research/Language Interests: Adventure in literature; culture and society; Polish and Russian modernism; post-communism; enchantment/disenchantment/re-enchantment; sociology of literature; genre theory.
About Me: Broadly speaking, my research interests focus on various ways in which ‘high’ and ‘low’ cultural forms interact with each other and, in the process, reflect on societies that produce them. Currently, I am finishing a monograph on strategies of re-enchantment in Polish and Russian modernist novel and researching my forthcoming book-length project, which will examine the concept of adventure in the context of East-Central European post-communist literature.
