Ph.D. candidate in Slavic Languages and Literatures
Natasha Kadlec

Natasha’s interests center around Soviet-era representations of the Russian past: the afterlives of the Russian classics, processes of canonization and de-canonization, and Soviet historiography. Her past work has also dealt with historical and ethnographic themes in 20th-century Russian literature (Kharms, Vaginov) and Soviet children’s literature. At present, Natasha’s research focuses on institutional and other mechanisms that influenced perceptions of the Russian canon during the Soviet era. She is also interested in comparative Slavic linguistics. Natasha grew up in Boston, but lived in Tartu, Estonia and Brest, Belarus before coming to Harvard.
