Congratulations to Professor Emeritus, Marcus Levitt, on receiving the 2023 Award for Oustanding Contribution to Scholarship! Professor Levitt is one of the world’s authorities on eighteenth-century Russian literature and culture. Broadly speaking, Professor Levitt focuses on the way Russian writers adapted western developments to create their own “modern” literary tradition. His ability to combine intellectual history with close literary analysis makes his work required reading for anyone working in this area. His writing stands out for his original insights, knowledge of sources, and lucid exposition. Read the full award citation on the AATSEEL website.
