Harvey Goldblatt is Professor of Medieval Slavic Literature in the Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures at Yale University. He is the author of numerous publications on general problems of language debates in the Slavic world as well as on specific works that deal with language speculation in and the literary patrimony of Slavia orthodoxa. His research interests extend from medieval Bulgarian and Serbian literature to the medieval and premodern East-Slavic heritage. Current projects include a major study on the Igor Tale as well as various aspects of the Cyrillo-Methodian literary tradition. A two-volume collection of his studies will be published in Poland in early 2018, under the title Studies on the Medieval and Premodern Literary Civilization of Russia and Ukraine. A volume of his articles on the writings and thought of Ivan Vyenskyj soon will be published in Ukrainian by the Kyivan publishing house Krytyka. Finally, another multi-volume collection that contains sixty of Riccardo Picchios studies, annotated and all in English, will appear in late 2018.
