Cambridge Slavonic Studies Research Initiatives

The Slavonic Studies Section of the University of Cambridge promotes international excellence in research over a wide array of topics in the study of language, literature, thought, history and culture from the Middle Ages to the present day. Our scholarly remit extends from Wrocław and Kharkiv to St Petersburg and Vladivostok. Our primary specialisms are Pre-Modern East Slavic culture; Polish, Russian and Ukrainian Literatures of the 19th and 20th centuries; Film and Visual Culture; Slavonic Linguistics; Nationalism Studies; Memory Studies; and Russian Sensory History.

Below is an outline of the research architecture of the Slavonic Studies Section. Our very active series of events, most of which are free and open to the public, can be found here. Individual research profiles of the Slavonic Studies staff are listed here.
