February 16, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
This lecture is part of the Carolina Seminar: Russia and Its Empires, East and West series, co-sponsored by the Carolina Seminar Program, the Department of History at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the Duke University Council for European Studies.
Hana Pichova is an associate professor in the Department of Germanic and Slavic Languages. She specializes in 20th century Czech and Russian prose. Most of her published work focuses on literature in exile, specifically on how memory functions in Kundera’s and Nabokov’s works. Recently she has been pursuing an interest in how Czech literature refracts various cultural and architectural events that occurred in Czechoslovakia after World War II.
