Lecture: «Marines Love Poetry, Too: Military Service, Literary Studies, and Russian Translation»
Join us for an envigorating presentation by visiting guest, Dr. Jamie Olson! After serving in the U.S. Marines for six years as an Arabic cryptolinguist, Dr. Olsen then pursued his other passions of poetry and literature and received his doctoral degree from the University of Michigan. During this time he also fell in love with the Russian language and culture and has since translated the works of several contemporary Russian poets. Dr. Olson is currently the Chair of the English Department at St. Martin's University, where he teaches poetry, literature and writing — as well as their first ever Russian language course for students!
Learn about Dr. Olson's fascinating professional and personal journey, as he takes us through his adventures in Petrozavodsk, life in the military, the labyrinths of translating Russian poetry and much more!
