Tine Roesen (b. 1967), assistant professor of Russian literature at Aarhus University, wrote her doctoral thesis on Dostoevsky’s early works (Casualties of Art: Narrators, Stories, and Kinds of Addressivity in Dostoevsky’s Early Works (1846-1849), University of Copenhagen, 2001). A grant from The Carlsberg Foundation allowed her to continue her research during the period 2002-2005, now focusing on the poetics of genre in the whole of Dostoevsky’s oevre. Alongside the results of this research she has also published articles on Tatyana Tolstaya, new Russian literature, socialist realism, and European russofobia. As a postdoctoral fellow of the Landslide of the Norm project, she studied, above all, two phenomena in contemporary Russian literature. First, the marked absence of literary and linguistic pretentions in singular works by a number of different authors (“the unpretentious text”). And second, a multi-faceted thematisation of the Russian Cyrillic alphabet, which in various literary works is presented as instrumental in the search for a post-Soviet truth, meaning, or national/cultural identity.
