Jillian Porter completed her Ph.D. in Slavic Languages and Literatures at the University of California, Berkeley in 2011. She is currently Assistant Professor of Russian in the Department of Modern Languages, Literatures, and Linguistics, and Affiliate Faculty in Film and Media Studies, at the University of Oklahoma. Her research focuses on nineteenth- and twentieth-century Russian literature and Russian and Soviet cinema. Porter s first book, Economies of Feeling: Russian Literature, 1825-1855, studies the economic and emotional paradigms that structured Russian narratives during the reign of Nicholas I. An article drawn from the project, entitled The Double, The Ruble, the Real: Counterfeit Money in Dostoevsky s Dvoinik, appeared in the Slavic and East European Journal in the fall of 2014. At the Davis Center, Porter will be researching a second book on figurations of the queue in Soviet and post-Soviet literature and film.
