Research in Slavic Studies

Slavic Studies faculty and students are actively engaged in scholarly research, and regularly present their work in on-campus forums and at national conferences.

Andrea Lanoux, Chair of Slavic Studies, and Nathaniel Pope '12, spent much of July 2010 in St. Petersburg conducting research for a co-authored article on illustrations in Russian children’s books. Here is Nate hard at work in Russia.

Pope received a ConnSSHARP award to accompany Lanoux on a research trip to Russia to assist her in gathering materials for a new book on post-Soviet children's literature

Slavic studies majors are encouraged to write honors theses or senior independent projects in their senior year.

Susana Hancock's honors thesis, "Gravestone Carvings: A Venerate Medium of the Intellectual and Spiritual Life of Seventeenth-Century New England" (2007), was nominated for the College's prestigious Oakes Ames Prize for the year's best honors thesis.

Katherine Avgerinos '06 published her senior independent project, "From Vixen to Victim: The Sensationalization and Normalization of Prostitution in Post-Soviet Russia," in the SRAS online journal shortly after graduating from Connecticut College
