Prof. Corrigan studies the intersections of philosophy, religion, and psychology in modern Russian and European literature, with a focus on the Russian nineteenth century. He is the author of Dostoevsky and the Riddle of the Self (Northwestern UP, 2017), which examines Dostoevsky as a distinctive philosopher of the unconscious; the editor of Chekhov in Context (forthcoming, Cambridge University Press); and is working on a new book, titled Soul: A Russian Literary History, a study of the high-stakes cultural struggle to define the human being and to map out the unconscious in the century leading up to the Russian Revolution.
