Professor Anna Berman is a scholar of Russian literature and Assistant Professor at McGill University. As a Senior Visiting Fellow Commoner at Trinity College, she has kindly agreed to give us a talk about some of her current area of research.

Talk Title: (Un)happily Ever After: Russia and the Family Novel.

Anthony Trollope’s novel Barchester Towers (1857) contains the famous quip: “There is no happiness in love, except at the end of an English novel.” This provocative claim raises the question: can there be happiness in love at the end of a Russian novel, and if not, why? Dr. Berman will explore the elusiveness of family happiness in the nineteenth-century Russian novel, drawing on examples from canonical authors like Tolstoy and Turgenev, as well as women writers who were highly regarded in their day but have dropped from view.
