Date

08/16/17

Valeria Sobol is replacing Michael Finke as the head of the Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures. Sobol’s research topics include Russian literature and culture of the 18th and 19th centuries, literature and science, travel literature, and Ukrainian and Czech literatures.

Feng Sheng Hu, Harry E. Preble Dean of the College of LAS, expressed deep appreciation for outgoing department heads and chairs and unit directors while voicing optimism for what the new leaders will achieve.

“The leadership changes we’re seeing this fall reflect healthy and normal turnover in our departments and units,” Hu said. “Our outgoing leaders have provided strong direction during an uncertain time, and the College of LAS has a bright future thanks in large part to their efforts. I am certain that the new leaders will continue growing our success.”
