Event Description

Exhibition curator Dr. Anna Barker will be in the Main Library Gallery from 3:00pm - 5:00pm for casual discussions about Fyodor Dostoevsky, his works, and the exhibit. Feel free to drop in any time during this event to meet Dr. Barker and ask questions.

About the exhibit: From Revolutionary Outcast to a Man of God: Dostoevsky at 200 is dedicated to the life and work of the Russian writer Fyodor Dostoevsky (1821-1881). Curated by Dr. Anna Barker, University of Iowa professor of Russian literature, it covers the entirety of Dostoevsky’s prolific literary career. His youth, his years of exile in Siberia, a period of gambling addiction, and his philosophical and theological teachings are explored in the context of Russian historical events and many of his most famous novels, from Poor Folk to The Brothers Karamazov.
