Join us for our New Book Series event honoring The Origins of Russian Literary Theory: Folklore, Philology, Form by Jessica Merrill. The Origins of Russian Literary Theory reconstructs lost Formalist theories of authorship, of the psychology of narrative structure, and of the social spread of poetic innovations. By recontextualizing Russian Formalism within this philological paradigm, the book highlights the aspects of Formalism’s legacy that speak to the priorities of twenty-first-century literary studies. Professor Merrill will be joined by panelists Ilya Kliger, Dennis Tenen, Mark Lipovetsky, and Liza Knapp.

Tuesday, October 25, 2022, 6:15 pm EDT | In person at the Heyman Center and online via Zoom.
