Introducing our newest faculty member, Professor Chloë Kitzinger

We are pleased to welcome Professor Chloë Kitzinger to the department this fall! 

KitzingerChloë Kitzinger comes to Rutgers University from Princeton, where she was a postdoctoral fellow in the Society of Fellows in the Liberal Arts and a lecturer in Slavic Languages and Literatures and Humanistic Studies. She completed her PhD in Slavic Languages and Literatures at the University of California, Berkeley. She also holds an MA from the Middlebury School of Russian and a BA in Philosophy from Yale. Her research and teaching interests center on nineteenth and twentieth century Russian literature, particularly the Russian and European novel, literary theory, and intersections between philosophy and literature. Her work has been published in Slavic and East European Journal, Nabokov Studies, and elsewhere. Her book manuscript in progress, Mimetic Lives, discusses Tolstoy’s and Dostoevsky’s novels as uniquely rich ground for addressing two underexplored questions: how is the impression of autonomously “living” characters created, distributed, and sustained throughout a novel, and what are the outer limits of this illusion’s power to educate or transform a novel’s readers? She has taught courses on Russian and European literature, Russian language, and academic writing. At Rutgers this year she will offer courses on Tolstoy, Dostoevsky, and Gender and Sexuality in Russian Literature.
