Serge Vladimir Gregory holds a PhD in Russian Language and Literature from the University of Washington. As a graduate student, he spent an academic year as a Fulbright scholar at St. Petersburg University, researching his dissertation on “The Literary Milieu of Dostoevsky’s The Possessed” under the direction of G.A. Bialyi. After completing his degree, Gregory spent most of his career outside of academia as a corporate communications manager, occasionally publishing articles and teaching university level courses on Russian literature and culture. His blog “Antosha and Levitasha” is his account of the process of writing a book on the lifelong relationship between Anton Chekhov and the landscape painter Isaac Levitan. He spent June and July 2013 in Moscow completing research on the book.
