Considerable research has been devoted to Fyodor Dostoevsky's incorporation of non-Russian art and texts as inspiration for his writing. Comparatively less attention, however, has been to paid to the immense influence the author's own life and works have had on literature, drama, philosophy, and art. This panel seeks to explore Dostoevsky's reception, as a man and as an author, by 20th and 21st century world writers and artists. It is co-sponsored by the International Dostoevsky Society and the Reception Study Society in celebration of the author's 200th year.
