Postdoctoral Fellow

Lindsay is an assistant professor at Lafayette College in Easton, PA. She completed her B.A. at Wesleyan University and her Ph.D. at Princeton University in 2015. On her research leave during 2020-21, she is finishing her book manuscript on the earliest Russian reception of Fyodor Dostoevsky. Looking at a range of interactions with the writer's work, from theatrical adaptations to literary and political debates among the liberal intelligentsia, her project reconstructs the emergence of Dostoevsky as a liberal thinker and Christian humanist and the broader evolution of his religious philosophy through the Cold War.
