Professor of Medieval Slavic Literatures, Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures, Yale University
Harvey Goldblatt is Professor of Medieval Slavic Literatures in the Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures at Yale University. He is the author of numerous publications on general problems of language debates in the Slavic world as well as on specific works that deal with language speculation in and the literary patrimony of the Orthodox Slavic community (Slavia orthodoxa). His research interests extend from medieval Bulgarian and Serbian literature to the medieval and premodern East-Slavic heritage. Current projects include various aspects of the Cyrillo-Methodian literary tradition as well as a major study on the Lay of Igor's Campaign, which will appear in print under the auspices of the Harvard Ukrainian Research Institute. A two-volume collection of his studies will be published in Poland in 2018, under the title Studies on the Medieval and Premodern Literary Civilization of Russia and Ukraine. A volume of his articles on the writings and thought of the Ukrainian monk St. Ivan Vyšens´kyj soon will appear in Ukrainian by the Kyivan publishing house Krytyka; and the first English translation of the monk’s complete writings will be published in the Harvard Library of Early Ukrainian Literature. Finally, a multi-volume collection that contains sixty of Riccardo Picchio´s studies, annotated and all in English, will appear in late 2019.
