Welcome to the website of Tamara Vardomskaya, speculative fiction writer. Links to my current publications and information about future publications can be found here.
I received my Ph.D in theoretical linguistics from the University of Chicago in June of 2018. If you would like to read my dissertation, Sources of Subjectivity, you may download it here (it is also available on ProQuest): Vardomskaya-Thesis-May-2018
For a while I worked as a linguist for Amazon Alexa Data Services. I currently work for the Canadian Intellectual Property Office.
If you are interested in reading Russian (mostly Silver Age – 1890-1930) poetry in translation, please go here. If instead of lyrical, serious and beautiful poetry written by other people, you prefer silly verse pastiches written by me, please go here.
