Marijeta Bozovic is Assistant Professor of Slavic Languages and Literatures at Yale University, and a specialist in Russian and Balkan literature of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. She is also the Principle Investigator of the Beinecke Library’s Joseph Brodsky Digital Humanities Lab.

In her guest lecture at the Department of Rare Books and Special Collections, Prof. Bozovic will share her experiences with this project and suggest potential applications of Digital Humanities tools and methodologies both in the library and in the classroom.
