Spring 2024 Office Hours: Tues. 2:30-4:30; Wed. 11-12

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 (2017); the editor of Chekhov in Context (2023); and is working on two new books – one titled Soul Geographers: From Gogol to Nietzsche, a comparative study of literary attempts to map the unconscious in the 19th century; the other probing Chekhov as a moral thinker for our time.
