Maksim Hanukai (Ph.D. Slavic ’14; Harriman Postdoctoral Fellow ’15-16) is the author of Tragic Encounters: Pushkin and European Romanticism (University of Wisconsin Press, May 2023)

“Lucidly written and energetically argued, Tragic Encountersattends to significant theoretical questions, compellingly reconstructs important historical moments in Alexander Pushkin’s poetic career, and, most importantly, carefully and brilliantly reinterprets four of Pushkin’s canonical texts. A fine contribution to scholarship on Pushkin, Romanticism, and the tragic mode.”
                                         —Luba Golburt, author of The First Epoch: The Eighteenth Century and the Russian Cultural Imagination

Hanukai received a Harriman First Book Subvention Award for the publication of Tragic Encounters.
