Harriet Murav has been Professor of Slavic Languages and Literatures and Comparative and World Literatures since 2002 and currently serves as Editor of Slavic Review. Her most recent book is Music from a Speeding Train: Jewish Literature in Post-Revolution Russia, published by Stanford University Press in 2011. She received a Guggenheim Fellowship for this study in 2006, and it was named a Choice Outstanding Academic Title in 2013. She was an External Faculty Fellow at the Stanford Humanities Center during 2012-2013. Her lecture today is part of her current book project. It is an exploration of the different dimensions of belatedness in Bergelson's early fiction, in the context of early twentieth century theoretical and artistic inquiries about memory, time, and consciousness.
