Bio

Milla Fedorova graduated from Moscow State University where she studied Russian Literature and Language. She wrote her Doctoral thesis on Russian Postmodernist Poetry in 2000. Before joining the Slavic Languages Department at Georgetown in 2006, she taught courses in Russian Language and Culture at University of Illinois at Chicago.
Her area of expertise is twentieth century literature and film. She is especially interested in intertextual relations: in the texts she studies, she searches for patterns and unexpected connections that sometimes go beyond the twentieth century. She researched Hoffman’s subtexts in Dostoevsky, M.Bulgakov’s argument with Tolstoy, Rousseau’s influence on Pushkin.
Fedorova is currently working on a book on Russian literary perception of America.
