The Tolstoy Commons is an online community designed to foster conversations about the Russian author Lev Tolstoy and to serve as a clearinghouse for scholarly activity related to his life and works. We welcome announcements of new books, articles, reviews, and conferences, as well as discussions of new pedagogical approaches to teaching Tolstoy.  Suggestions for announcements may be sent to Ani Kokobobo at akokobobo@ku.edu.
