Welcome to a Very Short Introduction soapbox. A short talk lasting 15 minutes from an expert in the field. The talk is free and takes place in the Blackwell Marquee, next to the Sheldonian Theatre.

Expert in Russian culture and literature Professor Catriona Kelly looks at what shaped the creation of a national Russian literature, how Pushkin, the ‘Russian Shakespeare’, influenced every Russian writer who came after him, and how Russian writers have been interpreted both inside and outside the country.
