Evan Alterman

PhD student in Slavic Languages and Literatures

At present (or at least since I last updated this page), I like thinking about empire, ethnography, and folkloristics; exotification and alterity; interactions between the Slavic and Turkic worlds; Soviet "literature of the nationalities"; and kitsch.
