Dr Russell Smith
Dr Russell Smith lectures in Modernist Literature and Literary Theory at the ANU. He has published widely on modernist literature and visual art, especially the work of Samuel Beckett. In September 2018 he organised an international conference at the National Film and Sound Archive to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the publication of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein. Way back in the day he wrote his Honours thesis on Kafka, and continues to teach Kafka stories in undergraduate and Honours courses at ANU.
