Yuliia Kabina

PhD student

A first-year PhD student at UGA, Yuliia Kabina continues her research in African American literature. As a Fulbright grantee she was introduced to Black Studies and took particular interest in the genre of autobiography and the manifestations of writer’s identity in literary works belonging to various genres. In addition to this, she is interested in cultural and linguistic aspects of colonization and decolonization. Her previous research area encompassed literary paradox and its functional transformations throughout time. She paid special attention to the role of paradox in modern and postmodern British and American literature. Although Yuliia’s research is focused primarily on literature, she is also deeply interested in 20th-21st century art, theater, films, music, and their interrelations.
