Maslov er en av grunnleggerne av the Historical Poetics Working Group som har igangsatt og ledet mange internasjonale kongresser og rundebordskonferanser. Ved IFIKK skal han undervise i gammelgresk språk og litteratur, og i teoretisk filologi på masternivå. Han presenterer seg på engelsk:

“My research interests lie in the domains of Ancient Greek literature, comparative metrics, historical semantics, and literary theory. I am the author of articles on Greek hexametric and lyric poetry and a book on the evolution of the literary field in Archaic Greece (Pindar and the Emergence of Literature [Cambridge, 2015]).  My recent publications also include articles on form and meter in European verse, history of concepts, and comparative theoretical poetics, as well as first translations from Russian into English of writings by Alexander Veselovsky, Mikhail Gasparov, and Olga Freidenberg.

From 2014 to 2016 I joined forces with Rocco Rubini to lead a two-year project on “Humanism, the Classics, and the Historical”, funded by the Neubauer Collegium for Culture and Society at the University of Chicago. Since 2016 I have been involved as a Senior Research Fellow in a project on “Reconstructive Poetics” funded by the Russian Scientific Fund. As part of this project, I have overseen the annotation of prosodic corpora of Ancient Greek verse and prose, as well as the creation of special digital tools that enable the recognition and analysis of iambic trimeters.

My research at IFIKK over the next several years will focus on empiricist, corpus-based poetics of the language of Archaic and Classical Greek literature and on the poetics of myth and emplotment in Attic tragedy.”
