MA and PhD programs in Russian at McGill University

Deadline: January 6, 2022

Russian Studies at McGill invites applications from talented and qualified students.  As part of the Department of Languages, Literatures and Cultures, we offer a uniquely multi-cultural and interdisciplinary environment. Our students and faculty are committed to open, culturally informed dialogue among national and across intellectual traditions.

Our faculty specializes in 19th-21st century Russian literature and culture, working in such areas as Russian Romanticism and Realism, the Russian novel, Dostoevsky and Chekhov, as well as Soviet and Post-Soviet film and media. We offer seminars in drama, film, folklore, genre theory,  the avant-garde, high Stalinist culture and post-Soviet culture.  Our students are invited to explore visual culture, cultural mythology, symbolic geography, and intermediality. Beyond Russian Studies, the Department hosts a broad and flexible range of graduate seminars, including literary theory, world cinemas, digital humanities, media studies and environmental and animal studies. A small but dynamic program allows for a great deal of personal attention, an atmosphere of collegiality and a close-knit intellectual community.
