  • About

    Christopher comes to the department having graduated from Ohio State with an M.A. in Russian and East European Studies. He is especially interested in the study of Russian literature of the Orient, particularly Central Asia, and how Soviet and post-Soviet Central Asians respond to Russians in their everyday lives and in literature. Christopher is currently exploring the theme of parricide and its relation to modernization in Russian and Central Asian turn-of-the-century literature. Christopher has studied abroad in Volgograd, Russia and hopes to continue his study of Persian and Uzbek in Dushanbe, Tajikistan next summer. He earned his B.A. in Russian and Political Science from Michigan State in 2010.
