Languages & Literatures
Luc Beaudoin, Associate Professor of Russian, received his PhD from the University of Toronto in Slavic Languages and Literatures (concentration: Russian Literature, with a minor in Polish Literature). Though he has been teaching primarily in the Russian Language and Literature Program since his arrival at DU, he also teaches in DU's general humanities and Core curricula. He is currently working on his second book, and his research interests include gender/gay issues in Russian poetry and culture, literary psychoanalysis and Lacan, cultural semiotics, and Romantic irony and idealism in its Russian manifestations. He and his partner Mark live in Capitol Hill next to the Molly Brown Mansion (the "Unsinkable Molly Brown" of Titanic fame). Their faithful Golden Retriever Sasha loves to go for walks and keep an eye on the neighborhood cats and squirrels.
