The faculty members within the Russian Department have special interests in such literary fields as modernism, literary theory, and poetics; in linguistic areas such as diglossia and verb structure; and in various aspects of language pedagogy, including the development of computer programs and interactive video to assist in the teaching of Russian.
Dartmouth College has over a dozen professors whose teaching and research relates to Russia and the countries of Eastern Europe. Within the Russian Department you will find the professors who teach Russian language, as well as the courses on literature, linguistics and culture.
