Text as a Philological Puzzle

Please join the Harriman Institute for a lecture by Oleg Lekmanov. Moderated by Mark Lipovetsky.

During this lecture we will try to imagine ourselves as detectives: we will examine various artistic texts by Russian prose writers and poets as deductive puzzles which can be solved using various philological methods. Among the authors who will be discussed are the great Russian prose writer Leo Tolstoy, the avant-garde poet-futurist Velimir Khlebnikov, modern poet Timur Kibirov, and one of the best Russians poets of the 1920s-1950s, Boris Pasternak.

This lecture will be conducted in Russian.

Oleg Lekmanov (b. 1967) holds a PhD in philology, and is currently a Visiting Professor at Princeton University. He was the Laureate of the White Book prize of Russian literature in 2019, and he is the author of over 700 published works.
