full professor of Slavistics and history and epistemology of language sciences in Eastern Europe at the Faculty of Arts of the University of Lausanne. My principal works concern the history and epistemology of language sciences in Central and Eastern Europe, and Czech and Russian ethnolinguistics. My work has focused, in particular, on the history of linguistics as reflected in the history of literature, on the history of the Moscow-Tartu semiotic school and on the reception of Saussurean structuralism.
