Nariman Skakov

Assistant Professor of Slavic Languages and Literatures

Chair of Undergraduate Studies, Slavic Languages and Literatures

Nariman Skakov’s trajectory from a peaceful dweller of the wide and wild steppes of Central Asia to an overworked West-Coast academic included an intermediary stop in the UK, where he studied literary theory and cinema. He has a strong interest in Andrei Platonov, the cinema of Andrei Tarkovsky and Rustam Khamdamov, literary theory (Bakhtin and Shklovsky in particular), Moscow conceptualism (Ilya Kabakov, Vladimir Sorokin and Dmitrii Aleksandrovich Prigov), intersections between the textual and the visual, and the Soviet 'Orient'. His first monograph (The Cinema of Tarkovsky: Labyrinths of Space and Time) was published by I.B. Tauris in 2012.
