PhD Candidate

Valeriia Mutc is a PhD student in the Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures. Her work explores the intersections between Russian fin-de-siècle literature and theatre, with a particular focus on performance studies, history of emotions, and cultural histories of theatrical practice in Russia. In her dissertation, “The Dramatic Turn: Chekhov, Gorky, and Tolstoy at the End of the 19th Century,” she examines a turn of Russia’s most famous writers to drama during fin-de-siècle and applies recent approaches in transmedial narratology to read their prose writing alongside their plays.
