Towards a Transnational Russian Studies

Transnational Russian Studies, the new book edited by Andy Byford, Connor Doak, and Stephen Hutchings, is the first volume to appear in LUP’s Transnational Modern Languages book series. The series aims to outline a fresh approach to research and teaching in modern languages, with the series editors hoping to move away from the traditional view that individual languages (e.g. French, German, or Russian Studies) function as individual siloes housing detailed expertise in France, Germany, and Russia, in favour of a vision of a unified modern languages field united by a common research question: how languages and cultures operate and interact across diverse axes of connection.
