My research interests are chiefly focused on twentieth-century Russian literature and culture. Within this broad field of interest, my work has centered on Russian Modernism, particularly on the Acmeist school of poets; and on the literary culture of the Russian emigration. A further interest is in literary translation, especially in practical aspects of translation. I am also interested in Czech literature and culture, though this interest is less active in recent years.
