Anne Eakin Moss teaches courses in Russian literature and cinema, film theory and feminist theory. Her interests include Russian Realism and Socialist Realism as well as comparative and philosophical approaches to literature and film. She received her Ph.D. in Slavic Languages and Literatures from Stanford University in 2005. She has been an Andrew W. Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow at Johns Hopkins and a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Davis Center for Russian and Eurasian Studies at Harvard University.

Eakin Moss’s book project, Women’s Community in the Russian Imagination: Realism, Utopianism, Modernity (1863-2003), investigates the idea of women’s community—a utopian women’s sphere ostensibly free from the taint of money, sex or self-interest—in its development from the classic Russian novel, through Stalinist culture, to post-Soviet fiction. It argues that this idea played a key role in molding aesthetic practices, shaping visions of a good society, and articulating the complexities of modern experience.
