RESEARCH FIELDS and ACTIVITIES:

In 1983 – 1995 I was working in the field of Comparative Literary Studies (West European and American Literature).

In 1996-97 I was one of the “father-founders” of the Center for American Studies at Udmurt State University (Izhevsk, Russia) and in 1997 as the Deputy Director of this Center I moved to the field of Cultural Studies, namely – to theory and practice of Russian–American cross-cultural communication.
During 1997 – 2003 I was realizing my first Fulbright Fellowship’s experience on this position:

1. International Conference “Humanities on the Threshold of the 21st Century”.
Vice-Chairman of Organizing Commitee 1997
2. Russian-American Cross-Cultural Round Table I: “University in the Process of Globalization”
Coordinator and Moderator 1998
3. Russian-American Round Table II: “Humanities in Multicultural World”
Coordinator and Moderator 1999
4. Inernational Conference “”Humanities and Humanitarian Education in the Ural Region” (sponsored by Open Society Institute/Soros Fund)
Vice-Chairman of Organizing Commitee 2000
5. International Interdisciplinary and Cross-cultural Summer School “Chautaukwa - 2000” (sponsored by Open Society Institute/Soros Fund)
Deputy Director 2000
6. International Round Table III: “Russian-American Intellectual Cooperation: Contacts, Problems, Perspectives”
Coordinator and Moderator 2001
7. Interdisciplinary and Cross-Cultural Seminar “Word and World: From Poetry to Hypertext”
Supervisor 1997-2003

After my Fulbright-Kennan Fellowship at Woodraw Wilson International Center in 2003-2004 I extra-murally jont the research working group “Theoretical Results of the 20th Century” at the Department of Theory in the Institute of World Literature, Russian Academy of Sciences. I took part in 3 international conferences and submitted 2 articles for the project (volume 3 forthcoming, volume 4 published in 2005).
My current research focuses on the problems of discoursive convergency and methodological interac-tions between natural sciences and Humanities at the University activity. Sub-topics are: “From ‘databases’ to integrative understanding knowledge”; “Poetics of the Truth(s): Fictional Aspects of ‘Documental’ Discourses”; this year – “Interdisciplinary and Cross-Cultural Readings: Problems of Theory and Practice”.
