Eva Eglāja-Kristsone "Dzelzsgriezēji" / Iron Cutters

“Already after the beginning of her academic work, which was established by publications at the end of the 1990s, Eglāja-Kristsone’s scope has included the interaction of literary processes, the surpassing of borders, an interest in the processes of writing and society in an unified point of view. The ability to improvise and the multi-leveled scope of interests has made Eglāja-Kristsone a noticeable part of literary events and discussions as well as our cultural life an popularisation of research in creative, non-academic forms. Research about the contacts of Latvian writers on both sides of the Iron Curtain in the 20th century in the context of political clashes is just a part of Eglāja-Kristsone’s scope of interests, which also includes gender studies and fin-de-siecle history, regular publishing of reviews on the newest scientific literature.”
