Assistant Editor: Anna Krivoruchko

University of Southern California, USA

Anna Krivoruchko received her BA in Russian specialising in literature and MA in art history in Russia. Her keen interest in both literature and visual culture naturally resulted in a “Kandidat” dissertation on ekphrasis defended in 2009 at Tver’ State University, Russia, as well as in a number of articles. Later she immersed herself in law and literature studies and is currently finishing a doctoral dissertation in the Slavic Department at the University of Southern California, USA. Once again, her research appears interdisciplinary and cross-cultural as it brings together Russian and Anglophone literature and film.
