Frederick H. White

Frederick H. White is Associate Dean (Research and Graduate Programs) in the Faculty of Arts at Memorial University (Newfoundland, Canada). In 2006, he published Memoirs and Madness: Leonid Andreev through the Prism of the Literary Portrait (MQUP). This initial research led to an examination of Andreev’s own first person narratives of illness, investigated within the cultural context of “degeneration” as it was understood in the Russian fin de siècle, resulting in the recently completed book manuscript, Neurasthenia: Constructions of Madness in the Life and Narratives of Leonid Andreev. He is now beginning a project on representations of the Russian Silver Age in post-Soviet film.
