by Sarah Hudspith The North American Dostoevsky Society stands with all the people of Ukraine, Russia, and the rest of the world who condemn the Russian invasion of Ukraine. See our statement here. This blog post has been developed out of a keynote lecture I gave at a Dostoevsky workshop at the University of Bristol in October 2022.[1] In the year and a half since Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine, we have seen intense debate about the relationship between Russian culture and the imperialist politics of the Russian state, and correspondingly about how the academic field of Russian s ..read more

by Fiona Bell The North American Dostoevsky Society stands with all the people of Ukraine, Russia, and the rest of the world who condemn the Russian invasion of Ukraine. See our statement here. Let me tell you a little bit about, as IDS President Carol Apollonio put it, “the Nagoya slice of the Dostoevsky chronotope.” I promise, no more Bakhtin jokes (in this report, at least—at the conference, my tally of overheard Bakhtin mentions came out to 11). The International Dostoevsky Society Symposium in Nagoya, Japan was slated for the 150th anniversary of Demons in 2021. Two years later, afte ..read more

by Lindsay Ceballos The North American Dostoevsky Society stands with all the people of Ukraine, Russia, and the rest of the world who condemn the Russian invasion of Ukraine. See our statement here. Every spring for the last three years, I have taught a course called “Dostoevsky in a Global Context.” The idea behind the course initially was to introduce students to a major writer by focusing on his afterlives in a variety of cultural contexts. Students would encounter Dostoevsky’s art and ideas first and would then see how they resonate in another writer who worked consciously in his wak ..read more

A Polyphony of the Weird: A Review of Dostoevsky Studies in the “Weird Russian 19th Century” Symposium

by Peter Winsky The North American Dostoevsky Society stands with all the people of Ukraine, Russia, and the rest of the world who condemn the Russian invasion of Ukraine. See our statement here. Is it fair to say that something strange is afoot in the works of Dostoevsky? The organizers and participants of “The Weird Russian 19th Century” Symposium surely think so. And the novelist himself would most likely agree. In fact, while speaking of the novel’s hero in the author’s note to The Brothers Karamazov, Dostoevsky remarks: Well, suppose you read the novel, and fail to see, and so do not ..read more

Dostoevsky, the War, and the Classroom: Reflections on Some Historical and Personal Entanglements

by Vadim Shneyder The North American Dostoevsky Society stands with all the people of Ukraine, Russia, and the rest of the world who condemn the Russian invasion of Ukraine. See our statement here. Before the war, I would argue in my syllabi and introductory lectures that nineteenth-century Russian literature still has much to say to people in the twenty-first century. It is no longer in dispute that it does, and that is precisely the difficulty. Previously, it was easier to begin with what already drew students to my classes, such as the arresting intensity of Dostoevsky’s works, and bui ..read more
