PUSHKIN, UNLIMITED The 1st Princeton Pushkinalia

Fri, Apr 20, 2018, 9:00 am
Location: 
245 East Pyne

On April 20–21 (Friday–Saturday), 2018, the Slavic Department of Princeton University will convene a workshop called “Pushkin, Unlimited.” This is the first of a planned series of “Pushkinalia.” The purpose of the meeting is to give a sense of the present state of Pushkin studies, with leading figures giving brief presentations on texts by Pushkin and his contemporaries. The program will begin with a keynote address by Aleksandr Dolinin (University of Madison Wisconsin) and will include a report by Ivanov Eubanks, editor of the Pushkin Journal — the only English-language journal devoted to Pushkin’s works — on the journal’s plans for the future. Presentations will be in Russian or English, depending on the preference of the speaker. Saturday will feature a 4:00pm concert of musical settings of Pushkin’s poetry.

In keeping with the workshop format, each scholar will briefly present a single work or part of a work (10–15 minutes), raising questions that will encourage further discussion of interpretive problems. All primary texts will be posted on line before the conference.
