Профессор Николсон, факультет средневековых и современных языков:
Research

The bulk of Dr Nicholson's publications have been on unofficial Russian literature and especially the Gulag theme. His work on Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn ranges from the phenomenology of his reception in East and West to textological and bibliographical aspects of his work, and he has translated several of Solzhenitsyn's writings over the years. His current project is a study of Solzhenitsyn's writing in the 1940s and 1950s (provisional title: Solzhenitsyn's Road to 'Ivan Denisovich'). The other twentieth-century writer on whom he has published is Varlam Shalamov, author of Tales of Kolyma (Kolymskie rasskazy). He is an Honorary Professor of Henan University, China.


Профессор Николсон - декан колледжа Юнив (University College), где я надеюсь получить место (надеюсь потому, что поступление в Университет гарантирует место в каком то колледже, одном из 38 колледжей Оксфорда, но в каком именно решается отдельно).

Вообще же программа просто великолепная, дающая возможность продолжить направление дессертации в любой из четырех областей - экономики, истории, политики или социoлогии. Дессертация на DPhil строится на основе магистерского тезиса.
