Mariya Dzhyoyeva’s current specialization is the Post-Boom Latin American Literature. She has previously earned an MA (Honours) and a PhD in Russian Studies, as well as a BA Summa Cum Laude in Modern Languages with Spanish concentration. Her current research is focused on the novels by Tomás Eloy Martínez, an Argentine journalist, writer, scholar, and one of the most prominent representatives of the literature of exile. She explores the ways in which the contexts of exile, power, and violence (re)shape the notions of gender and its representations. Due to her cultural background, she is also interested in the mechanisms that facilitate the creation of an alternative, violence-free reality through government-sponsored news media outlets in authoritarian states.
