1 April 2021 – Katya Rogatchevskaia on ‘Anglo-Russian Social Networks in the Early 20th Century’

In the first ARRN event of 2021, Dr Katya Rogatchevskaia talks about Anglo-Russian social networks in the early 20th century.

This reading group will focus on Russian emigre academics in Britain, and Anglo-Russian social networks more broadly, at the turn of the 20th century. It takes the form of a thought experiment (i.e. who would have come to ARRN meetings had they existed one hundred years ago) with a view to rethinking the contours of Anglo-Russian studies and examining potential new research avenues for the field.

Dr Katya Rogatchevskaia is Lead Curator, East European Collections at the British Library. She joined the BL in 2003. Previously she had taught various courses related to Russian literature, language and culture at Russian State University for Humanities (Moscow), Glasgow and Edinburgh Universities, and had worked as a research fellow at the Institute of World Literature (Moscow). From 2006 to 2013 she was review editor, Solanus: International Journal for Russian and East European Bibliographic, Library and Publishing Studies. She was also associate editor of ‘The Book in the Slavonic and the East European World’ for Oxford Companion for the Book, ed. by Michael Suarez and HW Woudhuysen (OUP, 2010), and from 2011, chair of COSEELIS (Council for Slavonic and East European Library and Information Services).
