Crime and Punishment at 150 is an outreach program that celebrates Dostoevsky’s 1866 novel. Our main event, a conference, took place October 20-22, 2016 at the University of British Columbia. The outreach program was co-organized by Katherine Bowers (UBC) and Kate Holland (Toronto). Events happened online and on-site in various locations across Canada and the United Kingdom.
This program was made possible through the generous support of our sponsors, including:
The University of British Columbia
including a Research Grant from the Department of Central, Eastern, and Northern European Studies, two subsidized student research assistant positions from the Work Learn Program, and a Hampton Grant from the Vice President of Research and International Office.
Green College, UBC
The North American Dostoevsky Society
And a Connection Grant from the Social Science and Humanities Research Council of Canada
Partners include: the Department of Russian at the University of Bristol, the British Association of Slavonic and East European Studies 19th-century Study Group, the Petro Jacyk Central & East European Resource Center at the University of Toronto, and the Cambridge University Library, and the Vancity Theatre.
