    Elizabeth Kane

    MA (2009)- Russian

    Ms Kane came to LLC's Russian Program in January 2008. She graduated with a Master's in Russian Literature and writes that she "had a great time studying her passion, 19th century poetry, while working with the wonderful faculty" (Professors Baran, Hoogenboom, Rougle and Sergay).  While studying in LLC she was challenged to expand her understanding of theory and her ability to write and analyze scholarly writings, all the while becoming very well versed in 19th and 20th c. Russian literature. 

    After graduating from U Albany Ms. Kane participated in the highly competitive Critical Language Scholarship program, fully funded by the Department of State, (Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs) which allowed her to spend two months in Tomsk, Siberia. She also received government funding to study in Moscow from June-August 2011.

    Ms. Kane currently lives in Moscow with her husband, Pasha Kulikov, where she tutors children and translates from Russian to English on a freelance basis. She worked at a school in Moscow for 2 years before branching off on her own.
