I am from Austin, TX. I am currently working on my dissertation prospectus. I am researching linguistic experimentation by Russian, Ukrainian, and Yiddish writers in the early twentieth century, focusing on the ways in which writers used manipulation of language to address questions of artistic language and nationalist or universalist identity. I am currently reading works by and about Velimir Khlebnikov, Perets Markish, and Moyshe Broderzon. My qualifying paper discussed how Simon An-sky and Vladimir Zhabotinsky formulated ideologies of language in their novellas "Pionery" and "Piatero" in response to Russian and German traditions of thought about language.
