Personal profile

Biography

I studied at the Unversity of Melbourne , at which I gained degrees in BA Hons (Russian, French and German), MA and PhD.  I have studied at Moscow University on an ANU Exchange scholarship. I have taught at Monash U in Slavic Studies and Comparative Literature from the 1970s to 2013 and have given guest lectures at Erlangen and Bochum Universities, St Petersburg University and SUNY at Stony Brook. I am chief editor of The Dostoevsky Journal: A Comparative Literature Review (2000-) and was chief editor of Transcultural Studies: A Journal in Interdisciplinary Research (2005-2018), published by Brill. Since 2019, I have been chief editor of Serbian Studies (published by Slavica, Bloomington, IN), the journal of the North American Society for Serbian Studies. I head the Australian Dostoevsky Society (ausdostoevskysociety.net) and represent the International Dostoevsky Society in Australia.

I supervise HDRs in Literary Studies, School of Languages, Literatures, Cultures and Linguistics. My research area is literature and phenomenology, specifically the poetics of Realism, Modernism and Postmodernism in the European canons and the theory of literary Structuralism and poststructuralism.
