Faculty

I received my Ph.D. in Slavic Languages and Literatures from the University of Illinois. I have taught at the University of Illinois, Parkland College, Concordia College, and the Defense Language Institute, where I chaired Russian Department B. Since 2006, I have been an Assistant Professor at the University of Oklahoma. In addition to teaching Russian language courses at all levels and Russian literature in translation, I coordinate the first-year and second-year Russian program. My research interests include nineteenth- and twentieth-century Russian literature; parody in the works of Nabokov, Pushkin, Chekhov, and Dostoevsky; women's autobiographical writings; and cultural studies, with an emphasis on cultural myths
