Personal profile

Research interests

My research interests are in the dis/continuities between late nineteenth-century culture and the interwar period; transnational European Modernism and the Avant-garde; interactions between narratives of the body (and/or body politic) and the arts; and interactions between different art forms, especially between literature, cinema and art.

My monograph, Cures for Modernity (Peter Lang, 2023), examines portrayals of medicine in Czech- and Russian-language literature and cinema of the 1920s and early 1930s. It looks particularly at the role of medicine in the post-First World War and post-Revolution project of regeneration, and its connections with the perceived degeneration of the fin de siècle. 

I teach undergraduate Russian and Czech literature and culture (mostly nineteenth- to twenty-first-century), Russian to English translation from first-year to MA level, and visual culture at MA level.
