Maria Todorova

educated at the University of Sofia (Bulgaria), currently Professor of History at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign.


Maria Todorova looks at three genres to evaluate the different forms in which a nation’s memory is stored and collectivized: Analysing academic narratives, fiction writing and films in the Bulgarian context, she dissects the ways in which history is constructed, how meaning is deciphered by the audience and how memory constantly oscillates between private and collective memory.
