Conference: Dostoevsky at 200 Roundtable

Event Date: September 22, 2021

Dostoevsky at 200 is a forthcoming roundtable discussion which will kick off an international series of online events based in North America celebrating the bicentenary of Dostoevsky’s birth, co-hosted and co-sponsored by the North American Dostoevsky Society as well as several different universities in Canada, the US, and the UK, including our own department.

The first event will be the roundtable discussion, Dostoevsky at 200: The Novel in Modernity, to be held on Wed, Sept 22, 2021. It is free, open to the public with registration required.

This public roundtable discussion celebrates the release of the volume, Dostoevsky at 200: The Novel in Modernity (University of Toronto Press, 2021), edited by Dr. Katherine Bowers and Dr. Kate Holland. Dostoevsky at 200 focuses on Dostoevsky’s contribution to the novel form and examines how the experience of modernity led to his particular engagement with form. In this discussion, the editors and contributors discuss the book’s conception, contribution to the field, and interpretative context.

Presenters: Katherine Bowers (UBC); Melissa Frazier (Sarah Lawrence); Kate Holland (U of Toronto); Chloë Kitzinger (Rutgers)
