Slavic Literature "Kruzhok"

A group to explore Slavic literary and linguistic cultures

Kruzhok was founded by graduate students in 2006 on the model of the academic circles (kruzhki) that flourished in Russian universities during the 1830s and ‘40s. The working group, which seeks to explore Slavic literary and linguistic culture, has two primary purposes: to facilitate the sharing of individual research among members, and to encourage collaboration with intellectual traditions and disciplines tangential to Slavic studies.

Membership is open to all who have an interest in promoting and engaging in research in Slavic cultures.

Nineteenth-Century and Beyond British Cultural Studies

We provide a forum for faculty and graduate students to discuss new research on the literature and culture of the long nineteenth century

Founded in 1995, the Nineteenth-Century and Beyond British Cultural Studies Working Group provides a forum for faculty and graduate students to discuss new research on the literature and culture of the long nineteenth century. Pre-circulated papers investigate issues of aesthetics, politics, history, theory, and other current sites of academic focus. We make a concerted effort to invite speakers whose research appeals to scholars in more than one discipline. Our focus on discourse analysis and questions of representation has proven particularly well suited to interdisciplinary study.
