cropped-people_faculty_katherinebowersHello and welcome to my professional website! My area of research specialization is Russian literature and culture of the long nineteenth century; I am particularly interested in genre, narrative, literary culture, as well as environmental humanities and imagined geography. Recently my work has taken a turn into digital humanities and media.

On this website you will find information about my professional activities: research, publications, digital projects (including pedagogy projects, virtual exhibits, and digital humanities projects), and public humanities (including public writing, podcasts, appearances, and recorded talks). For more about my research activities, my department profile page is available here; my Commons profile page is available here; my ORCID is here; and you can follow me on Twitter here or find me on Mastodon here.

I support open access and much of my work is available open access or through the Humanities Commons repository; I’ve included links to these resources where they exist. For more information about my open access practice and how to do it yourself, see “The Ins and Outs of Open Access” (2018) or “New Perspectives on Open Access Book Publishing” (2020).
