Nadja Berkovich is a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures. She has taught Russian classes from the elementary through third-year levels and first year Yiddish. She is working on her dissertation, entitled “The Emergence of Literary Ethnography in the Russian Empire: From the Far East to the Pale of Settlement, 1845-1917.” In it, she explores the genre of literary ethnography, the intersection of ethnography and fiction, including discursive practices and narrative strategies, the analysis of the different peoples of the Russian Empire, and its use of diverse genres (tsarist documents, newspapers, sketches, diaries, short stories, and plays) by focusing on one Russian and three Jewish populists: Fyodor Dostoevsky, Semyon An-sky, Lev Shternberg, and Vladimir Bogoraz.
