Please join us for this lecture by Ana Cohle, a specialist in twentieth-century Russophone and Ukrainian literatures and cultures.  She completed her Ph.D. in the Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures at Yale University in 2021. Her research centers on media technologies and cultural production, sound studies, Modernism, and the Soviet avant-garde. Her book project, Wireless Transmissions: Early Soviet Radio and Modernist Poetics, examines the interaction between disembodied communication and print culture between 1900 and 1936.  Working at the intersection of media ecology and literary studies, this work charts the emergence of a wireless discourse among Silver Age and early Soviet writers, who sought to achieve “direct” and “instantaneous” communication that would exceed the capabilities of text.
