Sasha Spektor's research interests include Nineteenth- and Twentieth-century Russian prose and poetry; Dostoevsky; Russian contemporary poetry; Literary theory; Ethics in literature; Polish Modernism; Formation of literary identity; Russian and Soviet cinema, and translation.

His publications include articles on Osip Mandelstam, Fyodor Dostoevsky, Witold Gombrowicz, relationship between science and literature, and narrative ethics.  At the present time, Sasha is working on his book-length manuscript The Reader as Accomplice: Narrative Ethics in the Prose of Fyodor Dostoevsky, Witold Gombrowicz, and Vladimir Nabokov.

In his spare time Sasha likes to garden, read and write, travel to far away places, and look for edible mushrooms in nearby forests, but not necessarily in that order.
