Dr. Yulia Kovatcheva received a Ph.D. in Modern Foreign Languages from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. Her dissertation: La modernité esthétique chez André Malraux: La quête du “primitif” is an interdisciplinary study of André Malraux’s œuvre, his aesthetical and philosophical though in preoccupation with the “mystery of man” and the primitive art. Her research interests focus on 20th-century French literature, contemporary French and francophone novel and essay in the context of art, art history, philosophy, and literary criticism. Her current research focuses on the development and deepening of the theme of the “primitive” examining the relation of Malraux to modern art.
