Pitt Professor Wins Book Award From the Modern Language Association

Nancy Condee, professor of Slavic languages and literatures and director of the Global Studies Center at the University of Pittsburgh, received the Aldo and Jeanne Scaglione Prize from the Modern Language Association. Professor Condee was honored for her book, The Imperial Trace: Recent Russian Cinema (Oxford University Press).

The Modern Language Association’s citation for the prize said that Professor Condee’s book “is an insightful guide to six major post-Soviet filmmakers whose work it explores aesthetically as a function of cinematic style and cultural ideology and historically as an imaginative response to the decay and collapse of the Soviet Union and to the turbulent post-Soviet aftermath.”

Professor Condee was director of the University of Pittsburgh graduate program in cultural studies from 1995 to 2006. She is the cofounder and coeditor of the journal, Studies in Russian and Soviet Cinema and holds a Ph.D. from Yale University.
