Event Detail: 

One of the world’s most eminent and prolific scholars of Russian literature, Zholkovsky was trained initially as a linguist (at Moscow State University, with a dissertation on Somali syntax). He soon turned to literary studies, becoming one of the central figures in the barely tolerated Moscow-Tartu school of semiotics. Since emigrating to the United States in 1979 he has taught at Cornell and USC.

This event is sponsored by the Council of the Humanities, The Eberhard L. Faber 1915 Memorial Fund.
