The Department of Germanic and Slavic Languages and Literatures is delighted to announce that Dr. Anastasiya Osipova is joining our faculty as Assistant Professor. Dr. Osipova is a scholar of Russian/Soviet and Eastern European twentieth- and twenty-first-century culture. She holds a Ph.D. in Comparative Literature from New York University and a B.A. in Comparative Literature and Theory from the University of Pennsylvania. Her current research explores Soviet materialist aesthetics of the 1920s-30s and the reception of this theoretical legacy among practicing European writers and artists today. Dr. Osipova has published a range of original essays on these subjects, and she is also active as a writer, translator, and publisher of contemporary art and poetry in Russia and Ukraine. She speaks both Russian and Ukrainian as native languages.
